561 Buxworth

Nobody would ever forget your address if you lived at Bugsworth. The name is Old English meaning "Bugge's enclosure", after a person, not a creepy crawly. In 1935 the villagers thought Buxworth more refined, then in 1999 there was a campaign to change it back, but with a majority of 98 against, Buxworth it remains.
