Glad this isn't a "Where have you worked", thread, I have worked at over 115 hospitals, and clinics.

The Hyndburn Riviera. Eventually, you'll achieve  a life of luxury  in Accrington and a holiday home in Rawtenstall.

Fantastic waves there, aren't there.

Just thought; did you go to Atlantic College?

Aye, Llantwit is decent. And it's a good question about Atlantic College, but, no, I didn't.

Bellenaves, France

 

About half n hour from Vichy?

Nice part of the world that. I was thereabouts last year. 

I'm too old with too many attachments here to move now. But I do wished I'd taken an opportunity to live in france when I had an opportunity thirty years ago.

Yes indeed. We lived there in splendid isolation for 6 years. Joined the Rotary in nearby Gannat,  still have strong links with Vichy.

To some extent. Collectively, the family prefers we live in the UK. 

Geneva was the best place for me apart from where we live now,  but wife didnt't settle so personal circumstances dictated a return to uk.

Bradford

Two work placements: Oxford 8 months & Accrington 6 months.

Including student meanderings, I have lived at 9 addresses in Bradford. Britain's greatest city and most useless council.

Been in my current house for 28 years.

I have to day I'm quite jealous of some of the places that people have lived. Others not as much so ?

Is it because I have lived in St Helens?

It is no St Helens, but it was up there.

I was a little too  close to Hertfordshire unfortunately.

My sister lives in Hertfordshire. I think it's very nice albeit reassuringly expensive.

I have to say it was the one stand out on your list but see my second sentence as to why. See my first sentence for the rest though, I'm certainly jealous of those ?

I lived all my life in and around Morley.  In 2013 I moved to Dewsbury and thought that my next move would be in a wooden box.  But fate decreed otherwise, my daughter who had lived at Larkhill, moved to Lincolnshire and they asked us to move closer to them.  However because of the Corona virus, and a death there's been a hiatus.  We've sold our Dewsbury property, but the Lincolnshire property has gone into probate, so here we are next to the Trent in Burringham.  Where there's only one shop - a chippy and it's closed.   All my adult life I've dreamt of living next door to a pub.  Now I do and it's closed!  Hey ho!

I live less than 700 yards from the house into which I was born in Brentwood in Essex (albeit that until lockdown during the week I stay in a village called Old Newton which is just outside Stowmarket as I work in Ipswich. The A12 is just about tolerable twice a week not twice a day). 

Been in Brentwood 45 of my 50 years, but had a five year period in my early 20s when I lived in Utrecht, Springfield (not the Simpsons ' home town but a village outside Cupar in the Kingdom of Fife), Regensburg, Roth (a town near Nurnberg) and Bournemouth. After that craziness I have been back in the town described in the 80s by the Telegraph as the dullest in the UK for the last 25 years. Thinking I have to move to Ipswich or thereabouts now before total inertia sets in. I do, however, spend about a month a year in my wife's home town of Phetchabun in Thailand and that's where I would like to end up
