British Place Names

I love British place names. Some of them are very old, and I try to look them up in books I've acquired about naming.

In fairness, I do have to point out that this sign was defaced and it's not really Poo End, but Pool End. But the other names are correct.

And the second sign is not defaced - Wyre Piddle is a real place in the Cotswolds. There's also a Much Piddle, but we didn't pass a sign for it.
