Rejected petition Reinstate all former Gropecunt Lanes of England

More details

I feel it is important to the heritage of our nation that we reinstate all the former Gropecunt Lanes.

In the Middle Ages it was common for a town or city to have at least 1 street of the name Gropecunt Lane. Sadly the last reported street bearing the name was in 1561, so it would be a wonderfully patriotic gesture to reinstate this extinct relic of our cultural heritage.

Just imagine the joy you'd feel when you found that you no longer lived on Magpie Lane or Parsons Street, but instead you lived on Gropecunt Lane.

It’s about something that the UK Government or Parliament is not directly responsible for.

Naming streets is a matter for individual local authorities.
