You want directions to Pump Alley? Take Bonar Road, past the Back Passage towards Beaver Close and go right into Fine Bush Lane. Just make sure you don’t take a wrong turn down into Mudchute.

Well, it’s no wonder we’re such a rude lot with these filthy street names all around us! 

Strumpshaw Tincleton & Giggleswick’s ‘Marvellous Map of Great British Place Names in the UK’ highlights some crude corkers from across the country with a good smattering of London lols.

Take a look at the big, long, dirty list of London rude names right here:
