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 :)

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

I can't be the only person here who, en route to BAOR in a convoy of four tonners, has passed through "Wankum." I think it's on the road out of Minden heading Ost IIRC.

Trust me, this place is a shite hole, nothing there other that our own version of the "Blue Grass Boys" and their associated families. OH yes there is a "Port" dispensing sand.

There are in fact two Twatts, one on Mainland Orkney (HY 275245) and the other on Mainland Shetland (HU 325535).

I've always liked Shafton (South Yorkshire), and not much can beat Dog in a Doublet Sluice in Lincolnshire for comedy value. As for the Doggingtree Estate in Staffordshire, what they get up to and where they get up to it is no business of mine.

PS. Must get over this OS map obsession.

Waikikamukau (pronounced 'Why kick a moo-cow") in New Zealand

Not to be beaten by the classic

Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, in Canada.
