They apparently existed..
I quite like the road names around Herne Hill- one should be (but isn't) called Bedpost Hill
'fucking' in austria
West 38½ St in Austin, Texas. I looked at an apartment there once, really wanted to get it just for the address...
Rue Porte Arse, Moissac, France
turtle head peak drive, las vegas
spunk run road, piketon
I go down that every day on my way to/from work
Wanless Road always makes me giggle....
Rue des Mauvais Garcons in the gay quarter of Paris also.
The Ha-Ha one is probably named after or on the site of a Ha-Ha en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ha-ha
I've only got one village on my mind this morning...
I like Neckinger street near our offices in bermondsey
Also like 'Of Alley' which was so named after George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham. So there's Villiers Street, George Court, Duke Street, and Buckingham Street and Of Alley.
I always liked riding up Carsick Hill Rd. in Sheffield.
Nearby Carsick View Rd. is pretty good too.
This road is in Sheffield and the picture shows the local police headquarters.
I also like this one from Northleach in Gloucestershire
Raciest street name
There is a Blackman lane in Leeds, funnily enough it used to be a hotspot for crack dealers.
Not that funny, no.
Seen that one before but still can't get over it.
That one's actually just called 'Neckinger' no street/lane etc. After the old river which used to run nearby - there's the Neckinger Mill just around the corner (now flats/offices I think). I go down it sometimes on my way home.
How did I miss this…
Bird in Bush rd
King’s Bench Street
One of the best parts about navigating in London (IMHO) is the history associated with the street names. Obviously most of that is lost now, but it’s some consolation on Old Kent Road, Great Dover street etc, which were once the beginnings of epic horse and cart treks out of London into the dirty south. And there is still a small fragment of Watling street left :)
Most of London’s alleys have fantastic names as has been pointed out…
