I checked the last lane in Wikipedia[^] (possibly not SFW) and found that the name "appears to have been derived as a compound of the words grope and ****"

No sh*t Shylock! I would never, ever, have guessed that... Laugh | :laugh:


Sometimes names are less obvious, but more interesting: there is a Dogflud Way in Farnham, Surrey (named after a non-longer-extant suburb called "Dogflud") which makes you wonder just what went on there...Confused | :confused:
