Salt 'n pepper's street names/capital cities quiz was good fun.

How about Leeds street names named after famous battles?

I'll start with Colenso Road.

Nile and Trafalgar - both off North Street.
These two are only a longbow shot away from Naseby Terrace and Naseby Garth - unsurprisingly just off Cromwell Street.
