More fish, please (a post for Phoebe)

This post greatly entertained my granddaughter, who's currently bogged down with homework and other teen issues (not problems. Issues. Have you notice that no one has problems any more; only issues?). So I promised her another post, just for her. Another sort of non-competitive reader-participation offering.

Fish again (of course). Place (plaice?) names adapted to make a fishy connection. I'll begin with Prawnwall and Codmin. Now over to you (and please don't disappoint her. It's a wet weekend. What else have you to do?).

    1. Thank you Adrian. But I don't recognise these as connected to real places? Or am I just ignorant?

    2. Troutbeck is a real place.
      Rudyard is an old county the smallest in the UK.
      Charnock is a place.
      Bridlington.
      Marl is a kind of shark so Marlborough then.
      Hakewell where the puddings come from.

    3. In that case, I apologise. Very ingenious, Adrian.

    4. I hate to be pedantic (a silly statement because if I did hate it I wouldn't be pedantic) but I think Rudyard is a lake in Staffordshire (?) and probably, therefore a place in Staffordshire too. I think the smallest county was Rutland.

  8. If Adrian means Rutland, that one is a step too far!

    Carpenden is where I live! (Sorry, that's all I can manage at breakfast time)
