How do you know when you're returning home?


Recommended Posts

Thought I'd start a thread for this seen as we were getting into it a bit on the joke Hull rebrand thread. 

As I said on there, people in Hull feel like they are home after a while away from the city when they see the Humber Bridge. I was wondering whether in other places there are really iconic things for the locals as well that tell them they are returning home?

When I'm visiting my sister at the old family home, it's the white horse at Sutton Bank. Get to the top of that hill, and I'm on the home stretch.

Coming back from work (back when I wasn't working from home), it is crossing the North Circular. Not quite as picturesque, but a sign that I should get ready to disembark.

Travelling back from yon side of the Pennines I start to realise I'm heading in the right direction when I can finally turn my windscreen wipers off.

By the way, there’s a bit of an urban myth about that house in the middle of the M62. 

No, it's definitely there ...

(And, yes, I know ...)

When I see the police helicopter. The plethora of crack houses. The pungent smell of Ganje. A Ford cortina on bricks in a garden. Aggressive homeless threatening for money. Industrial blight. Dog sheeite all over the pavements. 

Ahhh yes folks.... as I prepare to leave the far north of Scotland driving through the Highlands, the spectre and odours of Rovrum awaits.

I'm purely guessing you understand but from this post and ones on other threads I get the impression you don't care much for Rotherham. Like I say, purely a guess you understand..! 😉

I think there is an issue with it being on land owned by Darrington Quarries, it is also right on the border between Wakefield and Doncaster at Barnsdale Bar.

It's the quarries problem then not the councils, I have near by boarders with North & East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire and DMBC will clean up if they are made aware of the problem, we do have people in our area who are on the fly tipping case all the time as we get a lot with it being rural.

Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.
