    Default Stupid place names

    Following on from the ‘stupid pub names’ thread I thought I’d start a ‘stupid place names’ thread (not sure if it has been done before).

    Blandford Forum is one I have just spotted.
    There’s a place not a million miles from me called Effingham, I always chuckle when I see the sign.

    To get on the list I think that the location should have a pub in it to count.

    If we go international, the real schoolboy one is the last filling station before you leave Germany heading West on the E34 - Wankum.

    I came across a village in North Yorkshire called Booze (there is sadly no pub there) and just down the road was the village of Click image for larger version.

    Nempnett Thrubwell in Somerset has always struck me as quite amusing.

    No pub though unfortunately

    I remember stopping for a pint here about 20 years ago on the way to a match at Notts Forest. We saw the town on a road sign and our driver wanted to pull in for a beer.

    The gaffer said that people kept on putting Batman stickers on the town signs and a couple had even been stolen - You'll know why when you click the link.
