Here from Rotherham and alternate weekends over the Pennines in Oldham.
If that sir, is your idea of reality, I shall stay here and converse with the fish.

hailing from the great but seemingly unknown city of leicester desperately looking for some steampunk pals :) oh dear that sounds like a personal ad :S give us a shout if your from leicester my chums :)

I have seen a couple of posts mentioning Leicester as there was, at one time, an idea of running an event at the Space Centre, but nothing seems to have been mentioned since.  If there are other Steampunk people in Leicester/shire perhaps we could get together for a cup of tea?

There are a handful in the Leicester area.  There is quite an active bunch of us in the wider (what might be termed the old coalfields) area.  Most of us travel a little way to get togethers and Nottingham has been a focus since it is central.  Papplewick Pumping Station welcomes us regularly.

May I suggest you start a thread for planning a get together.  People will join in.
BE SPLENDID!

I am in Middlesbrough...

Well, in fact, I live in the no-mans-land between two of the main rough areas of Middlesbrough.

Yeah... Not much to be proud of, is it?  :P

That appears to be quite a common reaction to working forges, so it can't be that bad.

Welcome folks.  Please check out the various threads on geographical-United Kingdom to see what is going on that might be of interest.  If you are on facebook then please think about joining the group "British Steampunk Community" which lists the majority of events etc too.

Hello there. Figured this may as well be my first post. I live in a village called Histon, which is just north of Cambridge.
