I've noticed a few places around here where "neighborhoods" are denoted using the same style of street name sign as ordinary street names.
One such example is "Pin's Green". Another is "Lower Interfields".
These are inevitably a small collection of houses (just houses, no other facilities, so I suppose that makes it a hameau) alongside a fairly major A road.
In the cases above, the roads are Worcester Road and Leigh Sinton Road respectively.
What to do in these circs ? Does the "main" name of the road get suspended for as long as the aforementioned name is present ? Is the "main" name of the road supposed to have "died out" by now, so that its official name is up for grabs ?
How does the house numbering work.
It wouldn't be so bad if there were a distinct service road but, in the case of Pin's Green, it's just a layby/bus stop.
