Don't be anal

Don't touch our 'Butthole', say residents

Residents of an unfortunately named Leicestershire lane say they don't want it changed - even if it does make them the butt of jokes.

Butthole Lane in Shepsted, Loughborough, was named after the targets used in archery as it was where men went to practice their arrow skills in Tudor times.

Unlike the residents of Butt Hole Road in South Yorkshire, who had their street name changed to Archers Way, the people of Shepsted see it as a local tradition.

Parish council chairman Bill Hutchinson told the Leicestershire Mercury: "Everybody that is a Shepshedian by birth has happy memories of Butthole Lane.

"It is a permanent fixture, I would hope, for centuries to come, and anyone proposing to change it would be laughed out of court."
