What’s In A Name – It’s The Number That Counts

In some parts of the prettiest spots in England, there are some truly gorgeous houses – the sort that feature lots of beautiful tiled roof tops, long stain glass landing windows, oak front doors accessed via an impressive and cute gabled porch.  These wonderful places are reached via tidy five bar gates leading to a nicely curved drive, passing flower beds, approaching the equally impressive gabled garage.

One thing you will note, is that all houses in these gorgeous country lanes, everywhere in old England, stand out for having one common fault – they all have fancy or traditional house names of the era and it’s a devil’s job finding them unless you have access to the estat agent’s local map of ‘posh houses’!  Despite all the flowery names,  they still need to have a number, however common the idea, otherwise generations posties doesn’t stand a chance!
