Bellend Street: Edinburgh locals outraged at not making dirty street names list
Bellenden Gardens is just one of Edinburgh most curious street names
A recent survey of the rudest street names in the UK churned up some interesting entrants including “Butthole Road” and “Slutshole Lane”, but Edinburgh locals have expressed their outrage at our very own “Bellended Gardens” not making it onto the list.
Not only does it satisfy the rudie requirement, the street’s layout makes it a prime candidate to top the list.
Urged by this discovery, we set off to find some of the best place names Edinburgh has to offer. Here are our five favourites:
