There is a housing estate in Leeds called Penda's Fields, built in the 1980s, and a former railway station was named after him too. A few street names, such as Penda's Way, are around as well. These are not memorials but hints of where the battle may have taken place. One of the most popular theories is that it was fought at the stream known as Cock Beck and a pub stands there now.
