    I can’t help grinning after every stop on the east bound Piccadilly Line when tanoy announces that “this train is for Cockfosters”. Silly I know, but gets me every time!

    Not too far from me in Cheshire are the Pee-overs, (spelled Peover). Upper, lower, over and Pee-over Superior. The locals call them ‘Peever’ but that’s just an affectation.

    And I always chuckle when I am in Cornwall – sitting next to Roughtor on Bodmin is ‘Brown Willy’!

    Scunthorpe.

    I quite like the French town of Bitche as well. Particularly if you say it with an earthy Gallic accent.

    London’s full of amusing places πŸ˜†



    Chevin Cycles in Otley is on Gay Lane and coming home from the Morvelo Citycross, went past Straight Lane in Halifax. Just need to find By Lane and I’ve got the set

    Slack Bottom in Huddersfield, as well as a Solid.

    Stainland always draws a smile from outsiders.

    Pisser Clough (back up near Hebden,)

    and it’s near neighbour Shitten Clough. ), you need a 1:25,000 to find them

    Bolton Percy always strikes me as needing a hyphen.

    Norfolk has a Clenchwarton, which always strikes me as a good euphemism for piles.
