Description
A wonderfully silly collection of quirky, rude and downright ridiculous name signs photographed by Dominic Greyer. A visual treat for those interested in Britain's placenames, landscapes and language.

'Dominic Greyer has a fine eye for the absurd' The Times

Photographer Dominic Greyer spent twenty years roaming the British landscape in search of the country's most unusual placenames. He has an eye for quirky, rude and downright ridiculous name signs, and has photographed them all. But this is not only a book of wonderfully silly placenames - Dominic's exquisite, atmospheric photography, featuring the landscapes in which the signs sit, make the images special and often beautiful.

Britain's Strangest Placenames include the famous Twice Brewed (Northumberland), Fryup (North Yorkshire), Long Length (Kent) and Camptown (Borders). There will be a few rude street names too (Lady Gardens, Great Gays, Bell End and Giant's Ring, spring to mind).

A visual treat for anyone interested in Britain's placenames, landscape and language.
