References to Crickley in the proceedings of the House of Lords

I have unearthed a couple of intriguing 18th century references to highway or road "from the top of Crickley Hill" in Acts of Parliament:

Main Papers (Parchment Collection) HL/PO/JO/10/2/26 12 May 1702-15 Dec 1704

5 Feb 1703/04 - Engrossment of an Act for repairing the highways between Royston and Caxton, Cambridgeshire, and for the Highway from Birdlip and the top of Crickley Hill, Gloucestershire, to Gloucester (NS V no 1983).

Main Papers (Parchment Collection) HL/PO/JO/10/2/47 9 May 1759-24 May 1762

22 May 1759 - Act to amend an act of 24 George II as relates to the road leading from the top of Crickley Hill in Gloucester to the utmost extent of the said county.
