In Liverpool, Huyton is affectionately known as Two dogs fightin'......or simply Two Dogs for short.

Chamberlain Square in Birmingham, known by every Skater and Grebo as the The Steps, only place I can think of.

Though I would love to know where "Stinky Bay" is
Not sure about Stinky Bay, but a small bay just south of Newbiggin in Northumberland is known locally as The Stinking Hole.
After a storm all the loose kelp and other weed washes up there. And rots.
Further North along the coast around Beadnell, there's Football Hole, Nacker Hole and Lady's Hole. Appropriately enough, the latter two are next to each other....

Small promontory with a path round it just above the harbour here in Portree, not named on any map that I've seen, is invariably referred to just as "The Lump"
