    Well, there's a Bell End in Wollaston too which is slightly closer than Raunds

    (note - any houses likely to ever go up for sale on Bell End will easily cost upwards of a million!)

    Years ago, in my biking days, Back Street Heroes magazine used to run a competition each year called 'The Landmarks Tour' where you had to visit a certain number of sites out of a given list, in return for sendign them your snaps of you and your bike in each location you would receive a very nice metal badge. Each year would have a differnt theme, and one year (about 96 IIRC) it was silly named places. I went to...

    Tiksover
    Idle Working Mens Club (Leeds)
    Vulcan Village
    Pidley

    ...and several others that the years have removed from my brain. I still have the badges on my denim cut-off which I'll probably pass onto my kids
    I'll have to take a picture of the badges to show you as they were things of beauty.

    In South Australia, the real men come from Iron Knob.
    I had a strange desire to "spend a penny" when I visted the River Piddle in Dorset.

    My brother had a number of those ... and his mate was proud to have done a road trip in the states, going 1600 miles out of the way just to get a picture of him at 2 different places, Bald Knob and Spread Eagle.

    Lets also not forget the Man City Fans for their wish to remember Colin Bell (City legend) by naming one of the stands at the end of the pitch after him when they moved to the City of Manchester stadium

    I'm sure I read somewhere that up to a week before opening Clacket Lane Services were called Titsey Services - can't imagine why they changed it... *

    Whilst travelling around Israel last year we passed through this place:

    Shitim, Israel - Google Maps
