Someone Made A Map Of Every Rude Place Name In The UK

There are a lot of places called Bottom. But thankfully only one Doffcocker.

The UK is full of rude place names. The North West has a Two Butt Lane and a Pincock, while Yorkshire is arguably worse, boasting an Upperthong.

Strumpshaw, Tincleton & Giggleswick

The publisher of the map assures these are all real UK places.


There is also a surprising number of place names that are also emotions (Seething, Corney, Lusty).

All this is from the Marvellous Map of Great British Place Names, available from Strumpshaw, Tincleton and Giggleswick.
