Yesterday I had a walk around a new housing estate being built near us and all the the road names are inspired by the S&A books. There was Swallow Rise, Amazon Way, Flint Crescent, Duck Lane Swallowdale Place etc. Presumably these were chosen because the development is beside a small sailing lake (where I used to be a sailing instructor), but it seems a little odd here in Wiltshire with no direct Ransome Connection.

Are there other places with a similar naming scheme?
