I collect photos of funny street/place names, so this is right up my amusingly named alley!

A place nearish to be is called None-Go-Bye. I was always curious about this until I read a book of Yorkshire legends which said the name originated with a sign for an inn, which proclaimed:
'None go by dry
If you do
The fault's with you
And not with I'

Which doesn't explain the spelling, mind you.
