Lets give it another day for others to think about it or even post their findings and I'll put mine up. PanBiker can then trump me with his seven.

PanBiker, I'm not well up on street names so I can't comment. The one I thought was a Prime Minister was Granville which after thinking about it was Grenville. Its surprising what there is when you take the trouble to look round.
