As a UK resident I've personally found the towns/villages of Hope ("Well, we live in Hope.") and Clowne, both in Derbyshire.

Clowne even has a fire station - with a sign outside saying "Clowne Fire Station". I was laughing too hard to take a picture.

One can only wonder why some of these haven't been changed. Yikes. I can only imagine having to use Scratchy Bottom, for one, as my return address. I'd move. Or never buy there in the first place. gack.
