Whole estate in Tamworth named after cars or car related, Allard, Belsize, Crowley, Dennis, Jaguar, jenson, Jowett, Healey, leyland, Lotus, Riley, swift, sunbeam, Triumph, wolseley and maybe some others I have forgot. Sadly no Reliant which is stupid.

I think there is a Regal close in Tamworth, on the old Two Gates site.

That came much later after an outcry locally, arsehole Tory council were against it as didn’t feel it fitted with modern Tamworth whatever that is.

When they demolished the old Devon General bus garage in Torquay and built an ASDA on part of it, the road up to the new, smaller depot was called Regent Close, (DG had a large fleet of AEC Regents)



in the same vain as that there is a place in London called Routemaster close, someone should take an RM there :)

A bit tenuous, but there is a Wildgoose Close near here. I’ll pay a tenner for a picture of the namesake car parked their!

I have pics of a sierra parked on Ford Road, Lanchester and a cortina parked on Cortina Avenue in Sunderland.

You'll have to take my word for it because they are somewhere* in my photobucket which now doesn't work properly.
