    TBF though it is named that because it was the first street in the area to get street lights - does that apply to the one in Harrogate as well?

    There are posh places down South @Dos_Box.

    Warning - below youtube video contains swearing etc ( however there is a small snippet in there which this thread reminded me of )

    Can't check the video so not sure if that is the right video clip I was thinking of ( will check when at home )

    The C and S are often missing from the Canal Street in Manchester..... and I don't think that is local teens!

    Maybe it is a return service, in which case the sign is correct....

    ▲Good point.

    We also have an 'Intake', which must be where the buses pick up all their passengers.

    I had to go to Wickes in Redditch the other day and knowing what a pain the road system is in Redditch, I put my satnav in the minibus. I put in the postal code and it came back with Other Road. I remarked to the Site Manager what a dump Redditch is, they don't even have names for their roads. When we got there, the road was called Other Road.

    A had an Aunt who lived on Snappersnipes SNAPPERSNIPES on WESTBURY Street Map
