In his Gerlevran Neil gives under 'valley':  (usu) rôsh (Lh,WG) var  
rôz (WG cv PN rose)-ow. Is rosh a variant of ros and does it mean  
'valley'?
If it is attested only in LNN we cannot be sure that it was still a  
living item in speech.
After all, Chipping 'Market' occurs in several English toponyms, but  
nobody speaks of the International Money Chippings.
