Blink and you miss it.

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.
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.
...reminds me of Maidenhead in Surrey. Reputedly named because the women used to greet passing soldiers with "Hi, men!"

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

There is a Bader walk in Birmingham .........stupid cunts these planners sometimes...

Cheers for now
Now called 'Grape Street'

Incidently, Pudding Lane (where the fire started) was really called Puddings Lane and led to a cess pit.. puddings being the polite C17th name for turds.
See every day is a school day on ARRSE :biggrin: That may just come up in a quiz one day ........
