Too good to last

Toogood Street has no buildings now and serves little purpose as it runs along the side of  land drain. In fact so useless is it that ten years ago the council applied to have it stopped up on the ground that it is no longer necessary for public use! This seems a bit of a sad ending for such a wonderfully named street.
The strange looking device is connected with clearing out  the drain which enters the river Hull nearby.

  1. Too bad! It's a waste of a good street name.

    I remember reading a wonderful article about names of roads and streets in England. So many good ones.
