One for the Snobs.

I live on a road with a name ending in 'drive'.
Across the road is the start of a semi circular offshoot of our road ending in 'crescent'
In a moment of day-dreaming while looking out of the window I thought to myself which is higher up the social ladder, a drive or a crescent.
Here is my incomplete list starting with the highest snob value.
1) Mews
2) Court
3) Close
4) Avenue
5) Crescent
6) Drive
7) Way
8 ) Lane
9 ) Road
10) Street

Re: One for the Snobs.

The highest is probably when you don't have a road or street name but just a house name followed by the village name

Re: One for the Snobs.

Re: One for the Snobs.

Probably the highest of the high  has got to be
BUCK HOUSE
and that's all you need!
or if you are REALLY important, how about
NUMBER 10

Tricky. I'll plump for between Drive and Lane...........for no logical reason whatsoever  Smiley.  I suppose a good benchmark would be 'which ones are likely to be behind metal gates'

Re: One for the Snobs.

Not sure Court should be that high as Almshouses tend to have Court in the address.
