Daglingworth

Daglingworth: The bits hanging around the rear end of an unshorn sheep. Short for person who is unkemp and slovenly appearance. Anyone white wearing dreadlocks.

Dudbridge: Unsafe crossing like the one featured in that classic film “The Bridge over the River Wye” or even used to describe stepping stones across a river. Did I hear whistling?

Daglingworth does exist, it’s near Cirencester. Dudbridge is near Stroud close to the River Frome, one assumes that a bridge near there failed at some time.
