What is it about railway station names? There are weird sounding ones like Thatto Heath. There are the lovely-sounding ones: Flowery Field and Sugar Loaf. Then there are the slightly unpleasant ones: one shudders to think how Oldham Mumps, Dove Holes and Hag Fold got their names.

Then there are the ones which are just plain barmy: Besses o’ th’ Barn.

There’s probably a fascinating story behind each and every one, but, well… I can’t really be bothered with that right now. Use Google, dammit!
