I passed one in Edinburgh today, called Fair-A-Far Shot, which is quite unusual.

I also know of a small hamlet, not street, called Willie Stack’s Clump, which just makes me smile.

There's somewhere (is it York?) with a street or alley called Whip-ma-whop-ma-gate or similar, which I love.

There's a tiny hamlet in Monmouthshire called Bully Hole Bottom which brings me great joy also.

I came here to say Whip ma Whop ma Gate! It is a tiny street in York and I always like seeing the sign for it.

I like Frognal. Not Frognal Street, Road etc, the road is just called Frognal.

We’ve got an ‘Eagles’ in the local town. Not Eagles Close or Eagles Street. Just ‘Eagles’.

In Lerwick Shetland there is a Lovers Loan with gorgeous views of the sea...it also backs a graveyard. All very dramatic
