Oh heck, let's go the whole hog - Kemble on Thames..

Still a long way to go before the whole hog, surely, how about the twin parishes of Eton-on-Thames and Windsor-on-Thames connected by an over Thames bridge and then there's the parish a bit farther up stream, the current home of the current lodger in 10 Downing Street in the parish of Wesminster-on-Thames, oh yes, I remember, Maidenhead-on-Thames. I'm sure there are still more parishes that have yet to be suggested on this form that they adopt the -on-Thames suffix. While about it why not christen a few more parishes in the UK with an -on-(river name) such as North Somerset-on-Avon and my own home parish of Yate-on-Frome to start with.

Good morning from Melksham-on-Avon.   I was hoping this summer to go by train from Wareham-on-Piddle to Swanage, but am put off by the dogleg needed via Southampton-on-Itchen ...

Surely you mean Swanage-on-Sea!

Sewage -super- mare would mean Weston has a contender in the olfactory stakes.
Dawlish a cote le Brook would be preferable to Dawlish dans La Manche !

I guess we may have to take account of the (real or presumed) climatic increase in flooding incidents, leading to more names modelled on Upton in Severn.

Pedant alert, if you are going from Melksham-on-Avon via Salisbury-on-Avon to Wareham-on-Piddle then it would be Southampton-on-Test and not Southampton-on-Itchen. You would need to go via Eastleigh-on-Itchen to also go via Southampton-on-Itchen.

Should it not be Wareham-on-Piddle-and-Frome in view of the route followed

I like to travel.  It lets me feel I'm getting somewhere.
