German term or phrase: Gred
Does anyone know of a good Bavarian - English dictionary. Even though I grew up in Bavaria I am not familiar with a lot of the terms. What does "Gred" mean.

I am translating a "Heimatsroman" into English. the context is the following:

" Zaghaft betrat sie die Gred vom Hof".
