    There is a village just outside of Bromsgrove called Lickey End and a small hamlet nearby called Bell End.

    Many English towns once had alleys called Grope C@%t Lane, you can guess what manner of business took place there. They have all now been renamed or built over. Its political correctness gone mad I tell you!

    My favourites were two neighbouring farms just over the Scottish border called Cocklicks and Twathats.

    Even more humorously Rowley Regis (home of Bell End above) has a pub called the Cock Inn.

    I don't live very far from Fanny Hands Lane. Makes me smile every time I drive past on my way to Rasen.

    There is a village in Donegal called Muff. There is a petrol station in said village branded Top. There used to be a advert sign on the Derry side of the border to Top Muff.

    On my way to the Gloucester beer festival I passed a street called Spread Eagle Road.

    There is also a road called Honey Knob Hill in Chippenham.
