We live in Elland, nr Halifax West Yorkshire.


Hazel was brought up in Timperley, Cheshire or Greater Manchester depending on you POV.


I was born in Leigh, Lancashire and have lived in Oakham, Leicester, South London, Timperley, Bradford and Nottingham before moving to Elland.


Having said that I'm rarely here as I work all over the world. So far: all over the UK, Italy, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Taiwan, Sweden & Germany.

I'm now just outside Leominster in Herefordshire although the village itself isn't listed on the Geocacher's map so I'm placed the wrong side of the town.

Ahhhhh! and I thought Rome about 200BC


Bet Da Rubber Chicken can't pronounce Leominster correctly B) or even "Here ford shire" :lol::P:DB)

I wonder who invents these place names?


Hairy ford shire?

Leo minster or should that be lem minster?

What is that all about?
