Upper Piddle. Lower Piddle. Wyre Piddle.

I was in the coutryside this weekend, in the place where I grew up. And near the place I grew up is a place called Wyre Piddle. (They sell a beer called Piddle in a Bottle.) It makes me smile every time I see the sign.

I like silly place names. So I thought I’d share a few.

From my part of the world (the Midlands), we’ve got:

Upper Piddle.

Lower Piddle.

Acock’s Green.

Hornyold Road

Letch Lane

Minge Lane

Lickey End.

What have you got?
