Town Names Roads for Discworld

In 2002, the village of Wincanton announced that it was twinning with Terry Pratchett’s fictional Ankh-Morpork, the first city to enter into such an agreement with a fictional city. Now, Wincanton has announced that it will be naming several streets after roads named in Terry Pratchett’s fictional world. Pratchett provided a list of fourteen potential names and villagers were able to vote for which ones would be used for a new housing estate. Among the names Pratchett suggested were Treacle Mine Road and Peach Pie Street.
