The rudest placename in England.

Parts of the beautiful village of Fingringhoe in Essex date back to the twelfth century. It took the language of present-day hip-hop to make it sound dirty.

(After visiting the place and taking the pictures, I found that it had already been included in a book called Rude Britain. But the warped mentality that made me do a double-take when I passed the signpost is entirely my own work.)
