We all come across funny, weird or down-right bizarre place names as we browse our OS maps. The Yorkshire Dales is an absolute gold mine, and as I was planning a walk for the weekend I found my new all-time favourite of all the odd place names in England…. Flamethrower Hole!
It’s quite a way off route unfortunately, so I won’t be able to visit the potential pyrotechnics on offer just above Littondale, but I will be visiting it in the very near future. The lovely sounding Red Dot Pot will also be getting a visit on that walk 🙂
