Turkey Cock Lane


Here's what the Marvellous Map of Great British Place Names records for the area around where I live now.

As with the East Yorkshire section, there are some places shown that aren't noticeably amusing (Hainault Forest? Swingleton Green? Braintree?) but some that are. Nasty and Ugley are good enough to make the map's top 50 (Ugley being especially famous for the "Ugley Women's Guild").

I thought I'd post this because Turkey Cock Lane is where the antique shop is where that racist-looking wooden statue was for sale. These are indeed real places.
