These various street names often have historical significance behind them, but really, many of them are still good for a laugh.

1. Backside Lane, Warmsworth, Doncaster.
This is a cracker to start with. However, the origins of the streets name might not be what you think. Backside lane literally meant 'backside of the village' a few hundred years ago.
2. Warning Tongue Lane, Doncaster.
Warning Tongue Lane is an interesting name. This stretch of road runs through what was formerly the Black Carr Plantation which was once known locally as Wailing Wood. The name of the famous wood is linked with a tale still told locally of a carriage which overturned in fog on Warning Tongue Lane many years ago. A woman who died in the crash is rumoured to haunt the woodland to this day.
3. Cockshot Lane, Deepcar, Sheffield.
This is always a popular one with friends. Interestingly, there are only believed to be three streets in the UK that share the same name.
4. Deadman's Hole Lane, Sheffield.
Deadman's Hole Lane. The name of this street doesn't sound right however you say it. There are some historical theories behind the name of the street but, rather unsurprisingly, it may not be very pretty.
