Where the streets have a name
Map nerd Alasdair Rae deconstructs British street maps by their designation, such as Street, Road, Way, etc, and pops them onto beautiful maps that tell the history of a town.
“In Milton Keynes, and some other places, you also get streets with no second name, like where they are just called things like ‘Downland’ or ‘Cavenham’ or ‘Garston’. I think that’s because the local road namers refused to work pro bono. Okay, I’m really struggling to make this U2 joke work, sorry.”
