The imaginary town

While ‘researching’ the weird Aussie place names, I also came across this interesting little snippet. Apparently, Google is now mapping imaginary towns along with the real places that we know!

Argleton. That’s the name of the non-existent place on Google’s map of Lancashire, NW England. It can be seen on the map here. And if you don’t believe me that it doesn’t exist, have a read of this blog. This intrepid blogger went off to see if they could find Argleton between Hogwarts and Narnia.

Note: Since this post was written, Google have corrected their error and removed Argleton.
