UNUSUAL HOUSE NAMES

Was strolling round a part of my village I don't often visit, just taking the air, enjoying the Indian summer weather and looking at the nice houses and gardens both old and new.

One very smart detached house had a brass plate attached to the gatepost bearing the name .. AD-E-NUF .. love it .. hahahaha

  • The house next to my boyhood home had Letmebe on the front garden gate.
  • My nan has a sign next to her door it says the house number and underneath it says Llamedos (read backwards)

    that's welsh for 'Done Shagging Sheep'

    A mate lived at Wit's End. It was his dad's idea of fun - in that he reckoned his son was so bonkers he was indeed at his wits' end. But which is the right place for the apostrophe?

    Edited to add and there's a bungalow up the road called Corgwood. I think they breed Welsh Corgis.
  • When I moved to Beltinge I had a house name sign made up saying
    Beltyaminge
  • Not really unusual, but Billy Bond's house in Chislehurst is, I believe, called "The Terrace" after the old east terrace that he used to run up and down after normal training to keep super fit.

    My brother has a cottage in Ireland, it’s address is and he didn’t change it. Carlton-a-Valley. The H is silent.
  • Not unusual but our house is called Near The Wood which most people seem to think is lovely.
  • I lived in Shitterton after uni, my mum still lives there.

    Near the woods?

    This is in the village of Ludford, near Market Rasen Lincolnshire

  • I live next to "Moorecocks Farm" I had trouble keeping my wife out of there when we first moved in :wink:
  • Lillian Road in Barnes used to be called Fanny Road but the sign was stolen so many times that they had to change the name,' he says. 'There is a road called Arterberry Road in Wimbledon where some wag keeps painting a 'F' in front. They keep replacing the sign but the mystery signwriter keeps coming back

    Sherborne Lane, near Cannon Street, was originally Shiteburn Lane, meaning shit house after the public lavatories in it

    The Corporation might also be less than keen on an alley off Cheapside called, er, Gropecunt Lane. 'It was probably either a haunt of prostitutes or somewhere where young people went - a sort of lovers' lane,'
