Weaving is a method of fabric production in which two distinct sets of yarns or threads are interlaced at right angles to form a fabric or cloth. Cloth is usually woven on a loom, a device that holds the warp threads in place while filling threads are woven through them. A fabric band which meets this definition of cloth (warp threads with a weft thread winding between) can also be made using other methods, including tablet weaving, back-strap, or other techniques without looms

Mentioned in 1841 Dundee Scotland census:

Cherryfield Lane was a narrow avenue from Blackness Road to Walton Street, which at one time marked the western boundary of the extensive gardens that formed the nursery belonging to Mr Urquhart – hence its name. These gardens at one time filled the triangular space from the junction of Blackness Road with Brook Street, west to Cherryfield Lane, and included the ground occupied by Blackness Foundry. Urquhart Street preserves the name of the proprietor of these gardens.
