How do you spell Staniforth?

Featured Posts

Received this notice of a towpath closure from CaRT. They have managed to spell Staniforth three different ways in the space of a few lines. There is a Stainforth Road at Barnby Dun, near Doncaster, but no Satinforth Road.

Being charitable, since the different spellings are all anagrams, it is possible the characters just arrived in a different order from which they were sent! Or is that not the way email works? ?

So did they mean "rat not fish"?

Or "This fat Ron"? Maybe Ron ate all the bacon?

in many cases there is no 'correct' spelling of place names, particularly when they are centuries old.

 

Bristol - Brightstowe, Brigstow, ..................  wotever. .....................  or in the local vernacular: Bristle.

Another spellllin mishtake, Woodburn Road should actually be Woodbourn Road!

A good few years ago there was some mention on one of their pages about the Trenton Mersey canal although i am the last person that should highlight someone spelling.
