Funny Road Names

Has anybody got any funny road names, near to where they live they want to share. a few friends of mine on another forum have come up with a couple of crackers.

The main police station in Sheffield is on............Letsby Avenue
Another is "BUTT HOLE ROAD" but it had to be changed as the residents couldn't get home delivery's
There are a few more road names but I might get banned if I post them here

Anybody else got any funny ones.

Can't think of any at the moment, but it's quite funny - we live near a place where my maiden name and my best school friends surname make up the place name!

Okay Mods feel free to remove this one if anyone is offened.

In the village of Wollaston near Wellingborough in Northants a street running past the church is called "Bell End"

Had to do a double take when I first spotted it, followed by a school kid snigger.
