 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.

  1. 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

  2. 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!).

  3. 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 😉

  4. 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!

  5. 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.
