Gropecunt lane was an extremely common street name in England, but the Victorians renamed most of them. They usually used a new designation that includes ‘Grove’ or ‘Grape’ or ‘something Passage’, so traces of the original remain. “Gropecunt” was also Threadneedle Street’s original moniker —which would make the Bank of England’s address much more entertaining … :slight_smile:

If they could rename it now, I’m sure Threadneedle Street would become “Back Passage”
