The Daily Telegraph has published a list of Britain’s silliest street names. They include Arguments Yard, in Whitby, North Yorkshire and Grump Street, Ilmington, Warwickshire if you fancy a place to channel your inner Victor Meldrew.
Closer to home, Dublin has its fair share of silly street names including the blokeish Lad Lane, just off Lower Baggot Street in Dublin 2, Clinch’s Court could be just the spot for lovers, off North Strand in Dublin 1, Little Britain Street, off Capel Street, will appeal to fans of the cult TV show, while South Park pops up in Cornelscourt, Dublin 18, adjacent to Cabinteely Park.
The UK selection also included Dumb Woman’s Lane, Hell Lane and Rotten Row. Enter at your peril.
