Bump for Britain!
I have ancestors from Closeburn in Dumfries... back in the 18th and 19th centuries...
I'm from Leeds but I live in Phoenix. Been here 7 years
Found out the other day that I am a direct descendant of one of the singnatories of the founding document, good old British Bass off sharing love with our US cousins
I'm half British; my mum is from birmingham, father from north wales but he grew up mainly in brum. I moved to the UK in 2009; lived primarily in Rochester, drove between there and west yorkshire for a period before moving to northen ireland. Then moved back to Canada after a month in NI, lived in the UK for 13 months. I'd like to go back for a driving holiday one of these years; there were a bunch of places I intended to see but never got around to it.
You should definitely come back for a trip. I mean, you'll get bored of the motorways, but the stops will be good!
Probably won't be the best place to live soon, with the way things are going!
Oxford...retired from teaching a couple of years ago and concentrate on music now (wedding band, mainly).
Odiham, N.E.Hampshire, about 40 miles west of London on the M3...
I'm also in Hampshire, Southampton to be exact.
Check out the 'TB Mapped' thread - you're surrounded!
It's funny but since I started that map, I realised how badly I knew the UK's geography.
I know a couple of cities fairly well...London, Liverpool, Cardiff and most recently Edinburgh...but ask me where any county is and I'm lost.
Shameful considering how close it is.
Afraid to say it but I'm the same with the Emerald Isle! The closest I've been is the Isle of Man, because my uncle lived there when I was a kid - it was 1971 and I was 5. But it's on our list...
Highlands of Scotland
From the Home of Metal. ....
Would that be the Greater Brum?
Used to record our albums at a nice little studio called Earth Terminal just outside Odiham
Yes, just up the road at Roke... You would have driven past me to get there...
Fawkirk !! Smack dab in the centre of Scotland.
Site of 2 battles(1 won,1lost),home of the largest iron foundry in Europe (cannons used at Waterloo were made here). Nobel had a dynamite factory here on account of all the pits. Logie-Baird did his early TV broadcasts here. Barr's Irn-Bru started 1/4 mile from my house and there's still remains of the Roman wall across the road.
Far as bass goes there's a couple of BC fellas. Peaveys Home for Wayward Basses is here too
Spent a(n academic) year there - Bournbrook/Selly Oak. Caught Ripper-era Priest at the Academy toward the end of my stay.
