Hedging your bets

I'm on the bus to Grimley, going down Tench Road, when I noticed the name of the road that goes down by the car park to The Farmer's Lament.

Edge Lane Street.

The Farmer's Lament?

Madame: two street down, indeed.

Pat: gad, it's an epidemic! These northern towns, all belt and braces.

Roberta: it was a prize ewe.

It should have been Edge Hill Street if the farmer had to get off there, which is why he was lamenting.
