Shitterton Has Something To Be Proud Of
8:16am 15th August 2012
Residents of Shitterton have something to be proud of: it's been named the most unusual place-name in Britain.
It's quite an accolade, given that it beat Sandy Balls in Hampshire and Crapstone in Devon.
In fact, Dorset's got three in the top ten, thanks to Scratchy Bottom and Happy Bottom.
According to historians, Shitterton means 'the village on the stream that is used as an open sewer'.
Thanks to the latest win though, Shitterton may be in the gutter, but it's looking at the stars.
