I read Penistone as penis tone ! My first thought was that the name should be changed, then I realised that it was said differently! It must be me.

Is that near Lickey End, MrsEggy? The address I have always fancied putting on an envelope is Ryme Intrinseca, which is just south of Yeovil.

Great post for a wet Tuesday morning. When I was looking for a house,the estate agent wanted to show me one in Titty Ho. I could not face the thought of saying that every time I was asked for my address. Who on earth comes up with these names - what were they thinking? confusedgrin
