Fanny Hands Lane in Ludford, Lincolnshire, England leads through a small settlement to common ground and farmers’ fields.

Buying a home here could turn out a fan-tastic investment because most folk don’t like the address and some house prices are a third lower. Be warned: you may need a satnav to find your way home after dark. That’s because we heard rumors of students fannying about and nicking street signs at night.
