Is it childish to laugh at the second line of this address?

Not at all. I drive past a place called 'Touchen End' a couple times a week and have done for about 15 years. I still say 'touchen end hur hur hur) EVERY time I drive by. I'm 37 and 1/4.

It's not so much the names that tickle me - it's the vision of the residents giving out their address. Must be some wonderfully convoluted pronunciations.

Says BJ? :-)

I once looked at a house in a road called Bonar Place. I knew there was no way I could live there.

I grew up near Penistone.

Didn't even realise that was funny until I left.
