Just out of interest, and with a view to a potential future get-together of some sort (costumed, naturally!), whereabouts do those of you based in the United Kingdom reside in an approximate geographical sense?

I often find that the Imperial Telegraphical Network is a wonderful place to meet like-minded people, such as this very forum, but there really is no substitute for going out and drinking gin until the ealry hours whilst confusing and alarming "ordinary folk".

I myself am Birmingham based, right in the industrial Midlands.

Et toi?

Having just learned that 3 of my lessons have been canceled I have found myself at home & at liberty to answer to such calls...

I am in London

I also believe that there was a certain amount of discussion concerning a london based meeting, but as of yet nothing has been organised!

I am located in the rather flat and, currently, rather wet county of Suffolk, near the fair town of Bury St Edmunds. I really must get a picture of the exterior of the brewery... it is full of coppery tubing and gauge goodness.

I reside in the little honeypot of Poole in deepest darkest Dorset.

Birmingham you say?  Why, what a coincidence.  I reside in Edgbaston, though I am often to be found in Clayhanger, just off Brownhills (and in the Wallsall area).

Good grief man, you're practically local.

Were you to travel the route of the world's first passenger railway, you would pass within one hundred yards of my house. I can see the station (now a museum) from my front window.

I should clarify: the first permanent, steam-hauled public passenger railway.

I hope the weather clears up a bit so that it doesn't get any higher.

I've just been speaking to Nurse When, whose parents reside in Rotherham - luckily atop a tall hill, as much of their region is in a spot of watery bother. Their electricity supply has been curtailed, as unfortunately their local substation does not carry a diving-bell as part of it's normal repertoire.

Apparently, the borough of Rotherham has a dammed reservoir, which is creaking at the seams.

Fingers crossed that everyone Up North is blessed with a speedy return to boat-free normality.

Indeed. It looks like the British Isles have been deserted in preference for the Colonies! Or, the straight-backed stiff-upper-lip English reserve is preventing the less Narcissistic from declaring their locale.

I recently moved to Warrington, in the North West.  Hoping to visit the local museum soon as it appears to have a fair bit of victorian displays.

As soon as I have more money coming in I'd be happy to travel if a meet up was planned somewhere.

I don't actually know what a Parmo is, believe it or nay, being not at all Northern in habit.

(Also, your link is odd.)

Another pin for your map: my secret laboratory is next to the River Thames, somewhere between Richmond and Kingston.  Just follow the sound of the explosions from the tennis ball cannon my son and I built last weekend Smiley

Additionaly, I reccommend MAGNA in Rotherham, which has some of the most amazing gas-discharge devices, Jacob's ladders and three-storey high arc furnaces you could ever wish for. Outside of the main exhibits everything is rivetted iron, cavernous spaces, and rusty metal lit by moody science fiction lighting. It's so Steampunk, it makes me cry.

But for me it's Brum during the week, secret lab at weekends!


That's three of us in propinquity to "The Venice of the Midlands", then! Our heroine Tinkergirl, your good self, and I.

We ought to do something...

If you will permit me, I would suggest that Blist's Hill is the obvious place; not that far from Brum.
