Britain's silliest place names
Not all of Britain's idyllic towns and villages have pretty names to match. Dull, Twatt and Scratchy Bottom are some of the silly place names you'll find in our great land. Thought these were bad? Browse more hilarious UK spots...
Possibly the last sign you want to see when you've missed a turn-off... unless you need  directions for the tiny hamlet of Lost, 40 miles west of Aberdeen.
The Kent village of Ham is conveniently close to the town of Sandwich.
We challenge you to spell it! Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch  is one of the longest official place names in the English-speaking world and locals claim that when translated from Welsh it means 'St Mary's church in the hollow of the white hazel near to the rapid whirlpool and the church of St Tysilio of the red cave'.
It's not a tongue-twister but the Sutherland village of Tongue lies on the eastern side of the Kyle of Tongue, a large sea inlet which extends from Tongue Bay. The village's name derives from the Old Norse word Tunga, meaning 'a tongue of land'.
This embarrassing place name is a hamlet with just a tiny collection of homes. Its rather unfortunate name dates back at least a thousand years and means "farmstead on the stream used as an open sewer".
In a 2012 poll, Scratchy Bottom came second (after Shitterton) in the list of Britain's worst place names. The name is believed to refer to a rough hollow.
Chocolate box village Nasty, in leafy Hertfordshire, is home to rolling hills, bountiful wildlife and thatched cottages. Fortunately, everything about the area oozes 'nice'.
This far-flung village off Scotland's north coast once featured in the list of most vulgar sounding names in the book Rude Britain. Twatt is also the name of a settlement in Scotland's Shetland Islands.
There's not even a pub let alone a greasy spoon café in this North Yorkshire hamlet. Divided into Great Fryup and Little Fryup dales, the name comes from the old Norse ladies name of Fria and Up, meaning small valley.
If you thought this was funny, you'll love that the village of Great Snoring is located near Fakenham. Yes, really.
Devon might be famous for its cream tea but it's also home to Beer - well, the village, anyway.
The village of Dull in Perthshire is twinned with the town of Boring in Oregon. Where would you prefer to go? Seems appropriate.
