Legra Sunglasses....Legra?

 Leigh on Sea

Los is a Sunglasses and lifestyle company based in Leigh on Sea, We are inspired by the local area for product names and design. In particular I have been asked as to where the name Legra came from in reference to our Legra Sunglasses?

So below is a brief history lesson and the origin of Legra..

'Leigh-on-Sea is situated on the northern side of the estuary of the river Thames, only a few miles from the open waters of the North Sea to the east, and a similar distance from the Kent coast to the south. The coastal environs of the town feature a nature reserve at Two Tree Island and a centrally located beach adjacent to Bell Wharf. At low tide, Leigh's foreshore is characterised by a wide expanse of mud flats and creeks, extending offshore towards the deep water channel of the Thames (Yantlet Channel).

A place of minor economic importance at the time of the Norman Conquest, a reference to Leigh (Legra) appears in the Domesday Book survey of 1086. Ley is a place-name element found also in the nearby towns and villages of Hadleigh, Rayleigh, Hockley, and Thundersley.'
