    This has probably been done before, but what the hell 😆

    Place photos of amusing place names here, they can be towns, streets, pubs, caffs. Anything like that.

    I used to live in this village, the sign used to get nicked at least once a year 😉

    I got a yellow card last time I posted a village name on a thread like this. Turned it it was made up.

    I spent a few hours in a locked room thanks to US customs thinking I was taking the piddle, when they asked me where I was from 😉

    Not got photos, but in Bewdley there is a passage called the Gob and in Wollaston there is the famous Bell End.

    Minge Lane in Upton on Severn. Sign is now concreted into the wall.

    Cockshot Road is only just down from Hornyold Road in Malvern.

    Got to love the Slaughters (Upper & Lower) on the top of the Cotswolds.

    aye. About 100yrds from my old house 🙂
    Boringly enough, Hornyold is a local family name. Rather than anything more racy.

    I’m currently working in Cockermouth.

    Tomorrow I will be going for a shop ride with 4 Play Cycles in Cockermouth, looking forward to it.

    Wetwang has to my favourite in East Yorkshire.

    There is Blubberhouses in Noth Yorks I think and Keith in Scotland.

    Damn – was about to post the Thong one. Just up the road from where I was born.

    Crotch Crescent (Oxford)

    There’s a copse just round the corner from me called ‘Hum Hole’.

    I’m astonished that the sign has not been modified.

    Stamford has a ‘Melancholy Way’. Slight hijack but I was amused last week to be reading about a trial presided over by a lady judge called Merry Cocks.
