I once had to make a phone call to the post office at Twatt, the postmistress was not impressed and told me rather promptly and dryly "It's pronounced "Twart".

The bosses were also unimpressed that I was shouting across the office that I had Twatt on the phone.

Anyone mentioned Sodom (Dauntsey) in Wiltshire yet? Then there is Cock Road in Rowde, near Devizes.

Shitterton near Bere Regis. That one always makes me laugh. Cocking hill, and the Cocking Causeway, around Cocking in West Sussex, I nearly fell off my bike laughing at that little lot last Sunday. Rolling On The Floor . I've got a Winkle street just round the corner from where I live too Laughing

To get to (I guess it's the old Manchester City ground - I'm not a footballist!), you had to go up Back Passage!

One of my reasonably regular routes goes through Cock Green. I'm sure there's a cream for that though.

In Shepshed near Loughboro there's a Butthole Lane.

The local football team, Shepshed Dynamo have their ground on the road. Their fans sing "if you like it up the Butthole clap your hands".
