This is a map of Britain's rudest place names - from Upperthong to Twitham.

It comes via Strumpshaw, Tincleton & Giggleswick's The Marvellous Map of Great British Place names, which catalogues 1,400 of the country's naughtiest named towns, cities and streets (our favourite being 'Slackbottom Road').

As a spokesperson for Strumpshaw, Tincleton & Giggleswick told i100.co.uk, the list was put together after scouring the country to find the funniest place names. It was inspired by a three-month road trip around Britain in 2012:

After coming across a few cartographical gems on the way, a quick peruse online suggested that although there were a few top 20 or top 100 rude place name lists (focusing purely on the rude) there wasn't really a comprehensive list, and there certainly didn't seem to be a map or a nice print design out there. The thinking was that this would a great thing to have on your wall.

The map has two versions, one with modern script and one with a more old-school look. You can find out more here.
