Cowshit Lane

Cities with weird and unusual names are everywhere in the world. Sometimes, as your driving along a street you have to think to yourself: where did they get that name from? We asked you to take a photo of a strange place or street name in the UK. We received a lot of streets and places with funny, weird and extraordinary names. How funny would it be if you lived in Nomandsland!

We thought a lot about the people who invented these names, trying to figure out where the names came from. As you can see in the diagram, most of the incoming tasks were streetnames.

The photo collage below gives you a small impression of the entries we received. There were so many streets and places with fantastic unusual names. We can’t fit everything in one collage, so here are some of our favourites! These were all streets and places we had never heard of. Do you recognize any?
