Poultry Street Names

Postby sewren » Tue Mar 17, 2015 5:30 pm

Earlier today I had to pick up a trademe purchase from a house in Minorca Lane, and didn't think much of it until I got there and realised that Minorca Lane is off Serama Place, which is off Araucana Way - who knew there was a chicken inspired subdivision in Christchurch?!

I was wondering how many other people would get the link between the 3 road names - they probably seem quite random to most people so I did have a chuckle to myself. Anyone else seen any chicken or poultry-related street names...?

I had a look at the map. I guess we could suggest a few more such names, couldn't we :mrgreen:
