The Dodgy Place Name Game
« on: August 01, 2014, 17:27:17 »
How it works:
    You find a sign for one of the places in the list.
    You take a picture of your V-Strom next to the sign, the sign must be clearly visible.
    You can be in the picture yourself if you'd like.
    You then post the picture up in this thread.
    The first person to get the picture gets their name mentioned in the list.
    Other people can still post pictures of their bike at the same sign, but get no list mention.
    If you find one that's not on the list and you post a picture, we'll add it and you get the credit!
Only pictures taken from today's date onwards count! (Today = 01/08/2014, please be honest.)[/list]

(Edit: if there really is no road sign for any of these then a picture of your satnav showing you are there will count. If someone else finds a sign after you got the credit with a satnav picture then they can claim the credit.)

Old Sodum Lane, Dauntsey, Wiltshire






This is a Dead End, but round the other side is Sodum Lane, which has no signs anywhere.

Ram Alley, Burbage, Wiltshire

I drive past this one on the way to work every day, so wasnít hard to find.



In the road itself, there are no signs and only a 50 yard section where the Sat Nav tells you that you are there.



I didnít want to hang around here as the security looked scary.

The top post has already been edited to add a hyperlink to the post with the picture in. If the first post had all the pictures in it would be too congested.

What he said, but I will edit it to allow a pic of the satnav only if there are no road signs.

Okay, its a beautiful day out the sun is shining and I needed to have a run out today and try and round off my tyres from the squaring off they got traveling across France and I visited these places on route.

Turkey Cock Lane, Colchester, Essex



Then I went over to

Cock and Bell Lane, Long Melford



Had a nice ride cross country up to

Six Mile Bottom, Suffolk



A little bit further and I came to

Stow-Cum-Quy, Cambridgeshire



Heading eastwards I then found

Prickwillow, Cambridgeshire



On my way to my last village I came across one on the Sat Nav with no road sign

Barton Bottom, Suffolk



Finally on my way home I went through

Drinkstone, Suffolk



I did find one place which probably doesn't really count as it is a pub and there are lost of pubs with this name, but this one is

'The Cock Inn, Clare'



Well I found it amusing anyway.
So a nice round trip and started to round off the tyres again.
