THERE And Back Again Lane, Ha-Ha Road and Titty Ho have been named among a list of the funnier roads Brits live, work and travel on.

Researchers from driving experts LeaseVan.co.uk have revealed 35 of the silliest street names from across the UK, with many of those highlighted likely to bring on fits of laughter in homes, offices and playgrounds around the country.

Other streets to make the list include Crutched Friars, French Ordinary Court and Frying Pan Alley in central London.

Ghost House Lane in Nottingham, There And Back Again Lane in Bristol and Christmas Pie Avenue in Surrey also made the cut.

Even families fortunate enough to live on one of Scotland’s priciest residential roads – in the Grange area of Edinburgh – still have to put up with it’s silly name: Dick Place.

Tim Alcock from LeaseVan.co.uk said: “Some homeowners will see it as a curse while other families will love it, but one thing is for certain – living on or near a street with a silly name certainly isn’t boring.

“Funny or rude road names are a guaranteed way to break the ice."
