 DSCF2345Not only are some of the street names in St Ives a little different, many of them are very narrow, or simply passages leading from one lane to another; as you can see a lot of them are steep cobbled hills or flights of steps.

    Nice to see all the traditional names. (And translations into Cornish)
    Not sure that I would want to retire to the town though, with all those steep streets and cobbles to face. Cornish pensioners are obviously fitter than some.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

      Ha, I’m not sure many Cornish people actually live in the town itself Pete. Maybe on the outskirts where it is a little flatter.

        Sensible folk indeed! x

    What a delightful place for a wander!

    1. Heyjude says:

      It is when it is off-season. I wouldn’t attempt it at the moment. I’d never get a photo of the streets!

  3. Pit says:

    What an interesting post, both for the pictures and the unusual street names!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Well I haven’t got photos of ALL the streets so thought that instead of just writing a list I’d try something a bit different.

  4. Another great post, and great idea. Clodgy View is my pick, even if it dos seem to mean muddy and wet!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Sounds about right 😉

  5. There are some great names there! I remember starting to do a similar thing and gather the names of the streets when we were in Fowey, but didn’t get very far before I was distracted by all the different door knockers (which I took pictures of but have yet to put them in a post!).

    1. Heyjude says:

      Haha.. I took loads of door knockers in Malta and still haven’t done anything with them! (2006)

    Clodgy View and Carrock Dhu, awesome 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      I thought this would make you smile 🙂

  7. Allotmental says:

    Looks like a great place but its cheaper for me to fly to Europe than a train from London!! 😠

    1. Heyjude says:

      A darn sight quicker too!

  8. Wonderful street names, Jude. I assume there are no pubs in Teetotal Street. 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      heehee.. I never looked! You would imagine not.

  9. joannesisco says:

    This post was really different! Nicely done.

    The hills and cobblestones don’t necessarily frighten me off, but I don’t think I’d like to live on TeeTotal Street. These are not my people 😉

    1. Heyjude says:

      Nor mine. We’d have to forego that G&T 🙂

      1. joannesisco says:

        I don’t think so …. some things are just too important 😉

  10. Anabel Marsh says:

    Ah, Teetotal Street is in this time! And I’d forgotten about Virgin Street.

    1. Heyjude says:

      It’s a very quaint place 🙂

  11. restlessjo says:

    What a hoot! I love your presentation of this, Jude 🙂 I’m steering clear of Skidden Hill. Too many landings on the derriere 🙂 Salubrious is such an expressive word! Teetotal? Never in all this world! Happy weekend!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Hahaha… yes you’d do well to avoid that one. I think you’d like the Wharf or Lifeboat Hill perhaps 🙂

  12. You made me think of the poem “As I Was Going To St. Ives” 🙂 Thanks for that 🙂

  13. Great way to structure the post, Jude. So creative. Teetotal Street? Is that where the wowsers live? And it has to be said that it is almost impossible to read the name “St Ives” without adding “As I was going to” in your head.

I like a like, but I love a chat
