The village of #terton in Dorset, England, is the only place in the UK to be named after excrement. Its name is over a thousand years old, and means farmstead on the stream used as an open sewer.
#terton's sign has often been stolen by souvenir hunters. The residents have sought to resolve this problem by installing a 1.5 ton sign made out of a block of stone which, it is hoped, will be too big and heavy for vandals to steal.
