Would you live here ?

In my flooding lecture last night, I repeated a meme that I've used before: the naming of new housing estates which are potentially prone to flooding as they are built close to a floodplain... I mentioned names like 'The Water Meadows' or 'Miller's Mead' or 'Riverside View'....
Coincidentally, the following morning, as I was heading from Stone back to the railway station in Stoke-on-Trent, I saw this sign for a new development...
Have you come across any similar names ? Please let me know... I'd like to add to my collection.


This may, of course, be completely 100% safe from any future flood risk...
