There's a Swallowdale Road in Sinfin, a residential district of Derby. It may have been mentioned on here before. Many of the surrounding streets are named after species of bird, but if this one had been consistent with them it would have been Swallow, not Swallowdale.

There's a similar situation 30 miles away in Melton Mowbray, with a Swallowdale Road surrounded by other bird roads, and a Swallowdale Primary School.

And of course, there used to be a Great Northern Railway!
