Britain has a history common to many islands: it is one of repeated invasio n, occupation and assimilation. Each phase of this history has left its mar k on our culture, architecture, language and place names. A rich mix of Cel tic, Norse, Scandinavian, Anglo-Saxon, French and Latin have made the Engli sh language a gift to poets and writers. However, the nuances and double me anings so favoured by creative writers have also led to a number of very ru de place names. Rude Britain is a compilation of 100 of the best and rudest place names, each one photographed and explained by authors Rob Bailey and Ed Hurst. From streets such as Fanny Avenue, Willey Lane, Titty Ho and Asshouse Lane to a village called Cocks; Great Britain throws up a wealth of odd names that have somehow been overlooked by the nation. Until now.
