Rude Street Names

Discussion in 'Diamond Lil's' started by RN (Ret'd), Mar 18, 2014.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Names like Fanny Street and Slag Lane may make us laugh but rude street names can knock thousands of pounds off the value of your home.


    What's in a name? £84,000 according to new research.
    Property firm NeedaProperty.com looked at the effect of street names on house prices.
    It found that homes on roads with rude or embarrassing names are worth an average of £84,000 less than similar properties close by.
    But conversely, it does mean that savvy home-hunters know where to look if they want to bag a bargain property.

    So... where do YOU live??? Bell End, (Rowley Regis, West Mids); Minge Lane, (Worcestershire); Slag Lane, (Lowton, Lancs); Fanny Hands Lane, (Lincs); Crotch Crescent, (Marston, Oxon).

    Whip-ma-whop-ma-gate in York is shortest street at about 12 mtrs but has the required newsagents and sarnie shop to get you through the day, and a snicket off with letting agency.

    I've driven past a place called Douglas Bader Walk. I shit thee not. I think it was in Bournemouth or somewhere down that neck of the woods.

  15. Grope Cunt/Gropecunt Lane existed in London in medievel times, and apparently was not unknown in other cities.

  17. I used to drive past this every other week.
    In response to a phone call asking for my location, my boss spluttered, "You're in her WHAT?"
