Snodland and Darnley

I saw a private coach in Vauxhall on Friday advertising that it was headed for "Snodland and Darnley", including the quotes, via its orange, digital display.

I noted it because of the ludicrous destination names, both of them. But on looking them up later, I noticed two things:

Assuming it was visiting the two locations in display order, which makes sense (given that it was travelling east along the south bank of the Thames), it would be heading 32 miles east to Snodland, Kent, before turning back towards London, rounding the M25 and heading 451 miles north west to Darnley in Glasgow, Scotland.

Rather bizarre.
