What Is Quintessentially British, Has 136 Bottoms, And Looks Great On A Wall?
Introducing Strumpshaw, Tincleton & Giggleswick's Marvellous Map of Great British Place Names.
Taking you on a fun, slightly cheeky and mildly educational tour of Britain, Strumpshaw, Tincleton & Giggleswick (ST&G) proudly introduce their Marvellous Map of Great British Place Names – the very first of its kind!
After many months and several thousand miles of field research, from Galloping Bottom (Somerset), via Bishop's Itchington (Warwickshire) to The Butt of Lewis (Outer Hebrides), ST&G present 1400 Great British place names, geographically mapped in the form of Old Blighty.
Britain has long had an association (and fascination) with funny place names, and now, thanks to the Marvellous Map of Great British Place Names, you can have them all in your very own mapped version. Boasting a wealth of Bottoms, Balls, Buttocks and Beavers, you’ll also find a few Knobs, the odd Crack, a Clench (Wiltshire) and even a Roger Moor (Lancashire).
The first and most comprehensively researched map of its kind, the Marvellous Map of Great British Place Names is available in a selection of prints in either a classic or deluxe (personalised) edition. It contains 1400 funny, strange, slightly rude and just plain silly place names showcasing a spectrum of emotions (Seething, Corney, Lusty), personal qualities (Loose, Idle, Ugley), varieties of underwear (Pant, Undy, Netherthong) and quasi-expletives (Fulking Hill, Ruddy Carr, Great Heck).
100% genuine and hugely amusing, the Marvellous Map of Great British Place Names is laughter-inducing and sure to bring a smile to even the sternest of faces! It also has an educational element, with a handy glossary and guide to the meaning of place names, explaining the origins of place names such as Middle Wallop (Hampshire) and Twatt (Orkney / Shetland).
Perfect for planning the ultimate Great British road trip, celebrating our rich cultural heritage or simply enjoying the evolution of language and humour, the Marvellous Map of Great British Place Names can be purchased online at www.stghq.com with prices starting at £22.00.
