I'm based in Taunton, Somerset at the moment. Thereabouts, anyway.

*Come Autumn, that may change to Exeter or Leicester depending on whether either university wants me to go along and do postgraduate study. Undecided

I'm near Staines- the Roman ad Pontes (Latin: 'at the bridge') home of the largest mechanised Linoleum factory of it's time.

It's now an open plan shopping centre with a large car park, and a statue commemorating the Lino factory.

Ain't progress grand?

I'm originally from the grand sea-port of Liverpool. Now I live in Tiptree, Essex, where they make jams, marmalades and other preserves.

I reside in the Roman town of Bicester, a mere stones throw from the dreaming spires of Oxford.

Ahhhh!! Bicester!!

Sorry!

Dr. Q.

p.s. Oxford's very nice. Stop throwing stones at it!!

Try their tomato sauce. A little sweet, but great on chips.

I don't suppose that any of you fine ladies and gents happen to reside anywhere near Wales by any chance?

Or on the flip side, in Devon? For you see, I am a stranger in a strange land here in Wales as I'm only here for university..
I'm afraid I haven't really explored the local area to any great degree but if memory serves my home back in Devon isn't too far away from Exeter which is a very lovely city.
It has the best vintage clothes shop in the world! The Real McCoy!
There's also a nice little railway station in my local town that had a steam train on Halloween. It was most magical.

Other than that I don't really know what else to say!

Would someone be so kind to add a pin to Bournemouth for me?

Yes, the sunny seaside conurbation (Poole-Bournemouth-Boscombe etc) that has recently lost its 2nd pier (the one at Boscombe)- which I believe both (Bournemouth's as well) were constucted by the Victorians

As it came up in another thread you can pin my down for Liverpool, however, I should make it clear I will not only not be meeting any of you, but I have established a machine gun nest on the roof to repel visitors. There might also be traps on the grounds but going further into details would spoil the fun. Wink

Near Wales seems a little general. I can see it from the beach.

Even better than near Wales I believe there are some people in Wales, although that might not prove helpful either.

You must have very good eyesight if you can see all the way across The Wirral, or are you perhaps in that famous old Liverpool suburb "Berchdeal" or perhaps "Formbee"?

Are you anywhere near Sedgeley? The home of a very fine brewery as I recall.

You can see the Welsh Mountains from the Wirral. I used to see them when we'd go to school.
