    there is a road called shitty brook lane in Weaverham that is now called (boringly) shady brook lane

    I have posted these two before. The first was perhaps 20 years ago on Orkney, the second a few years before that, so doesn’t really count as it was in France…

    We found a tiny village called Fa in the Spanish Pyrenees and on the same drive another place called Sex.

    There’s a hill called Lord Hereford’s Knob in the Black Mountains.

    But my favourite new discovery is not rude at all, a place called Christmas Pie in Surrey.

    Has anyone mentioned Muff yet? Near Derry in NI. Home to a rather popular diving club. As well as the main road there is also a back road, but I believe it’s hard to negotiate.
