Castleford has a tickle cock bridge.

Well sometimes it does, and sometimes it does not.

You mean the "Tittle Cott Bridge".

Council did try to rename as that.

Locals weren't having it and fought back.

They succeeded.

Its real name of Tickle Cock Bridge has been reinstated.

However, the 'will they-won't they' of it all continues on Google maps and other suchlike.

Magpie Lane in Oxford once had a very colourful name

People seem to think we use terminology considered vulgar more nowadays, but there is a lot of evidence to the contrary.

The above (Magpie Lane) would methinks knock the current number one off its perch:

bentlegs is right though, it can be difficult to email New Zealand, especially if you are trying to send one to this place:
