    Goku -

    You missed two of the larger local places - familiarity obviously breeds contempt. I am talking of course of:

    Leatherhead
    Crawley

    The second of which is as bad as the name implies :)
     
  4. I've always loved "Nether Wallop" just next to "Jack's Bush".

    Makes me giggle every time!

    Contempt is not nearly descriptive enough for those towns. :twisted:
    Crawley in particular is one of the few places I can describe as “crawling” with more chav scum than my town, but that’s a topic for another thread. :D
     
  6. C*ck Pond
    Mincing Lane
    White Knobs Way
    Pratt's Bottom
    Titsey Park
