/ News: What's Wrong With Having A Brown Willy?
There are places with much higher "giggle factor" that they should look at first.

They all spring to mind.
Perhaps they should do what they did to Greensplat and blow the shit out of it.
Cornwall's great for place names :)
Cocklick End, Forest of Bowland, Lancashire. :)
Brown Willy vs Hill of Swallows? ROTFLMFAO!!
"something that will be slightly more attractive to residents and tourists than Brown Willy!"
That bloke's all mixed up.
Locals go up it, cos it's a nice little walk.
The only reason tourists go up it is because the name is so attractive - and ridiculous :)
Pity it isn't in the Lake District, a walk from Cockshott Point to Breasty Hawes is fnarr-tastic enough. If you went via Brown Willy it would be gawhoop-licious...
Lord Hereford's Knob!
En route to Brown Willy as you drive through Dorset you will pass Puddletown which until the Victorians got prudish had always been known as Piddletown. (It stands on the River Piddle)
That's an interesting one.
There are a few of them in Orkney as well as Shetland. The name is Norse in origin (the form was 'ūveit') and it means 'parcel of land'. The same place-name element exists in Yorkshire and elsewhere as '-thwaite'. They're a bit more direct in the Northern Isles. :-)
Incidentally, one of them goes by the name of 'Clousta Tw*tt', which for some reason makes me snigger even more.
> Incidentally, one of them goes by the name of 'Clousta Tw*tt', which you can get antibiotics for, these days.
I hired a bike and rode over to Tw*tt from Stromness, for the obligatory photo (by Tw@tt church in fact). It was a bit lost on the Danish guy who tagged along though. Poor bloke must have been wondering why I'd dragged him out to some non-place in the middle of nowhere ;)
Actually, "Clousta" and "Tw*tt" (I feel such a prat having to bowdlerise it like that.) are two separate places on the same road sign. And they're on Shetland Mainland, not Yell. Otherwise fine, especially the etymology.
There was this bloke who loved his girlfriend very much, so he had her name tatooed right along his willy. Once day, he went to the gents' and.....
Ah, sorry. I must have seen them on the same road sign and got confused.
ps - I never said they were on Yell!
Last time someone looked over the urinal screen he wondered why I love ludo so much as to have it tattoed on my penis. I just sighed and remembered the days when it said "I made love to deborah in Llandudno"...
Chateau Condom - a dinner party essential. It's not far from Bergerac
> They all spring to mind.
> You forgot Blowinghouse of course ;)
Of course, twinned with Come-To-Good and Playing Place isn't it? ;)
Not to mention London Apprentice Wtf?
down by Harrisons theres a road sign to Balls Green and Blackham
Dorset has a village called Shitterton which is on a tributary of the River Piddle. The Piddle also passes through Piddlehinton, Piddlethrenthide and Puddletown (which sold out).
Or there's this one just up the road in Northumberland http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=10900
sandy balls campsite in the new forest?
..........there also a black bloke having a wazz. As you do (?!) Our Hero peeked at the blokey's willie, and said to him, "wow! Is your girlfriend called Wendy, too?"
The black bloke turned to him and said.....
Wankum in Germany just before the Dutch border on route 34 if my aged memory serves me well
Not to mention the street in Shrewton called "upper backway"
Absolutely nothing wrong with having a Brown Willy when the rest of you is brown too. More of a problem when caused by a navigation error.
Pratts Bottom on the A21 South East of London.
Claggy Bottom, in Hertfordshire

And lets not forget Cocks! Interestingly this little Cornish village did the opposite recently. Some years back it was changed to Cox in the name of political correctness. Has now resumed its former (morning?) glory.
Think it was next to a pub called the white house.
Just north of Garmisch-Partenkirchen is the 1850m high mountain called Wank. You can stay in the Wankhaus and go up it on the Wankbahn :-)
Mind you, there is always Minge Lane in Upton on Severn. The sign had to be concreted in as it was forever getting nicked.
The residents of Butt Hole Road, Conisbrough, petitioned for the name to be changed. it is now Arches Way.
Regarding Brown Willy, I included it in a mountaineering cryptic crossword that I composed some years ago. The clue was 'Result of nude sun bathing'.
