Residents in Conisbrough, England have changed the name of their street after deciding that Butt Hole Road no longer appealed to them.[Previous TGIS]
The name, despite its modern meaning, was given to the street hundred of years ago, and is named after a communal water butt.
Resident Peter Sutton told The Daily Mail that “he originally thought the street’s name would be fun - but admits he soon got tired of the jokes.” The paper also noted that the street had become a tourist attraction, particularly popular with Americans.
The street formerly known as Butt Hole Road is now known as the far less interesting Archers Lane.
