  7. There used to be a Gropecunt Alley in the City of London....a long time ago
  8. I've seen a "Primitive Place".

    It did what it said on the tin.

    Why is it all the really shit places in a town are named after poets (I've several estates with Keats, Shelly, Shakespeare, etc)?

    Best place I ever saw was a right hole of a tower block in South London (Bermondsey I think) called Dolphin Tower. I turned up to a flat with the big red key on my shoulder, to see an armoured door with all the marks that previous cops with battering rams had left on it.
  9. Beat me to it. Gropecunt Lane or Alley was so named because it was popular with Ladies of Negotiable Affection. The one in the City is now known as Maiden Lane.

    Could only be bettered by A-Team Avenue.
  11. ...reminds me of Maidenhead in Surrey. Reputedly named because the women used to greet passing soldiers with "Hi, men!"

    PS I made that up.
  12. Tesco Beijing have branched into the Ann Summers market.
