"We're having the last laugh living in our 'rude' road"

Gazette: "We're having the last laugh living in our 'rude' road" "We're having the last laugh living in our 'rude' road"

Turkey Cock Lane has been named as one of the most embarrassing roads to live in, but one resident was desperate to move there just for its name.

Holly Jago-Eagland, 34, was far from dissuaded by the so-called rude name and instead waited years for a house to come up for sale in the quaint country road.

The lane in Stanway finished seventh in the Needaproperty.com survey, which found nine of the top 10 rudest named roads had lower house prices than neighbouring streets.

Turkey Cock Lane was the only one to buck the trend, with average house prices for a terraced home being higher than in neighbouring London Road.

Mrs Jago-Eagland said: “I particularly always wanted to live in Turkey Cock Lane, partly because it is such a rural road, but mainly because of the absolutely hilarious name, it absolutely appealed to the child in me."

See today's paper for the full story. 

Top 10 streets from across the country voted as having the most embarrassing names.

1.Minge Lane, Upton-upon-Severn, Worcestershire
2. Slag Lane, Lowton, Lancashire
3. Fanny Hands Lane, Ludford, Lincolnshire
4. Bell End, Rowley Regis, West Midlands
5. Crotch Crescent, Marston, Oxfordshire
6. The Knob, Kings Sutton, Northamptonshire
7. Turkey Cock Lane, Stanway, Essex
8. Cockshoot Close, Stonesfield, Oxfordshire
9. Cumming Street, Islington, London
10. Cock A-Dobby, Sandhurst, Berkshire

The main point of the article was saying that this one was the one road out of the top 10 rude named streets which actually has higher property values than the surrounding streets, likely hence the title...

I think it's more a case of operator error but if you're having it looked at you may want to get the caps lock key checked too.

I love the way you follow my posts about on the threads, with your little gang of friends a bit like a "WOMBLE"

You seem to enjoy it?

The reason why nothing ever gets done in this town is because of sad smart backsides like you.

It makes the town, the paper and the system look C**P.

With a handle lie yours you live in an era in your mind that you cannot even appreciate fully. The 70's was prolific times that's gone unsung and been grossly unappreciated.

Oh well in the words of king george the 6th no on kicks a dead dog

carry on sad one and your gang

Unlike you I'm pretty sure king george would have arranged his sentences to actually make sense.

As for the 'winstons' you typed it you tell us what it means or do you not understand how to use a question mark?
