The sheer number of funny, rude and delightfully odd place names that bejewel Britain, from a pair of Twatts in Scotland to the many Bottoms strewn across England, via a plethora of Welsh Pants, is not only bewildering, but also truly world-class.
Refreshed and redesigned for Christmas 2018, the Marvellous Map of Great British Place Names is a full-colour, two-sided map folding out to 100 cm x 89 cm, featuring:
Britain’s Top 50: Britain’s very best place names and a stupendous road trip connecting them all - the finest, most amusingly British road trip you could ever take.
Rude Place Names: Loads of them! Some sound like insults / terms of endearment (Twatt, Orkney / Shetland), some like expletives (Fulking Hill, West Sussex), and some are just plain wrong (The Devil’s Arse, Derbyshire)
Pants & Bottoms Galore: There are hundreds of Bottoms, cheekily dominating parts of Dorset (Happy Bottom), Hampshire (Slap Bottom) and Dumfriesshire (Rotten Bottom). Wales, on the other hand, is absolutely chock-full of Pants (Pantycoch, Pembrokeshire).
Odd Place Names: Stop it. It’s not all smut, you know. Some of Britain’s finest place names take things in a different direction, and you’ll love them all the more for it, e.g. Seething (Norfolk), Wigtwizzle (South Yorkshire) and Shufflesheeps (West Sussex)
Glossary: A wide-ranging list of terms commonly found in British place names, to help you be a smart-arse and give the impression this map is a serious educational publication
