just back from a booze up in amsterdam and all my photos seem to be of me or my mates pointing/sitting/standing next to signs that say "kunt" (scuse my french, or dutch in this case) a lot, i think it meant you 'cant' do this or you 'cant' do that etc i have no idea but you get the drift, little things please little minds!:rolleyes:

who wants a really childish rideout called "stop that, its silly" using place names in the vicinity of rosedale, or incorporate them into an existing rideout?

so far weve got "bell end" and "fryup", any more?

its a shame there isnt more time and i wasnt more local, someone with a really perverse sense of humour could have loads of fun making up a geocaching game. what could i leave in bell end i wonder?

Well, there's Great Fryup, Little Fryup, Fryup Hall, Fryup Lodge.....

Oooh & while we're being a little childish, how about 'Cock Heads' on Glaisdale moor ;)

I must admit, 'Bell End' alway's makes me giggle when I pass it!

How about 'Pussy' near the Col du Madeline

"gropec~~t lane" in oxford, and yes it does exactly what it says on the tin, or used to, once being a street full of brothels. them olden day folks had the right idea, i think streets should be named for what goes on there, it would make navigation a lot easier.

the goodytwoshoes have since changed it to magpie lane but some of us prefer the traditional to the politically correct.

I want to live in 'Wetwang' - always make me think you are giving your own personal two finger salute when people ask. Where do you live? You simply say Wetwang. (good fish n chip shop too)

One for sorrow, two for joy, perhaps?

I live near Penistone- bummer if you have a business there as people will struggle with google to find you.

Ugley is not far from me. Six Mile Bottom is about 60 miles away from here too. Then there's Little Snoring and Great Snoring, of course.

How about "Fannny Hands Lane"?

Just down the road is a little place called "Fusty Weed". Even locals don't believe it exists until I show them the photo of the village sign.

In Norfolk we "do different" when it comes to place names!
