Grantham is probably known best for two things, once being voted the most boring town in Britain and for being the home town of one Margaret Roberts (Thatcher). They also have a pretty decent football team, Grantham Town, known as the Gingerbreads. The origin of this nickname is said to date back to the 18th Century when a local baker was trying to make Grantham Whetstone, a traditional hard biscuit designed for travellers. He mixed up the ingredients and invented a new gingerbread snack which became very popular, and this is where the club gets it's nickname.
That's it for this edition. There are many more odd names out there and maybe there will be a chapter three in the future.
