This Crescent was developed by the Newcastle Gas Company in 1972. It is named after H.G. Raggatt, a prominent geologist.
It is probable that all of the streets in this subdivision were named for geologists: Sir Harold Raggatt; Adam Sedgwick; Robert Etheridge; Edward Fisher Pittman; Edward John Dunn; Bruno Campana; William Harper Twelvetrees.
