Pity Shitterton’s tourism board
No shit. The U.K.’s worst place name goes to Shitterton in Dorset, according to a recent contest by Findmypast.co.uk.
But there is no uh, end, to the list of poorly named villages in the country. Here’s their top 10:
1. Shitterton, Dorset
2. Scratchy Bottom, Dorset
3. Brokenwind, Aberdeenshire
4. Crapstone, Devon
5. Golden Balls, Oxfordshire
6. Ugley, Essex
7. Crackpot, North Yorkshire
8. Backside, Aberdeenshire
9. Great Snoring, Norfolk
10. Happy Bottom, Dorset
These are good, but they’ve completely missed some beauts that were catalogued by the Daily Telegraph, including Cocks, Cornwall, Butt Hole Road in South Yorkshire and Hornyold Road in Worcestershire. Check out their list.
