and not country? So yeah I'm gonna say Lincolnshire in that case.
you typed country. Yes, I know I'm being pedantic.
so you can really narrow it down. Good shout, too.
i was born in wrexham.oh fuck!!!
I thought my reading skills were dying on me. I actually copy + pasted it into notebook and put spaces between each of the letters and made it bigger, and in bold to check I was right.
Which, looking back seems a little over the top....
I don't know any counties, as it is fucking useless knowledge.
Because it's got MAIDENHEAD....
as bad as the sinbin that is Maidenhead
where Mel B had a lesbian experience. It was in a pub called the Honeypot.
Berkshire - because of Slough.
but I think i could hate it more than essex, and maybe more than kent!
suffolk? norfolk is a lot worse than suffolk.
but i agree with you. fine when you're either really really young or really really old.
My knowledge of counties is quite limited...
there's just quite a lot of horrible places in these counties (I'm sure there's some nice places too!).
I think my favourite is North Yorkshire because, as well as being my home county, it's probably got the least people compared to area and therefore the least annoying/gross places :P
but yes all these places probably do have a higher percentage of horrible places.my favourite is also north yorkshire.its beautiful
it's not that I've spent much time there but being from the other side of the Pennines, it's my birthright to dislike it.
Nothing can possibly be worse.
Whichever one Newcastle is in
this yorkshire hate is unacceptable.
would you really separate it up, aren't we just one big happy yorkshire family.
Whats actually in north, i get as far as Skipton and run back home to the west side.
And you get some beautiful beaches on the east coast of the county (Robin Hood's Bay et al).
It's a really great county and loads of really interesting history went down there too :)
Three of which are horrible.
One of which is the nicest place in the country.
What do you mean, what's in it?
Two national parks, some of the most beautiful countryside imaginable, perfect villages.....
But it's quite understated, so I can see why some wouldn't agree. I guess a lot of people like mountains and that kind of 'dramatic' scenery better.
The coast is brilliant
Yorkshire is a historic county, however its been cut up in recent times is besides the point.
They're very, very different.
West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire are largely towns and cities, and not a lot of pretty. East Yorkshire isn't particularly nice.
North Yorkshire is completely different, geographically, and in terms of people/life. Especially in the parks.
I also have an elderly relative in Pickering which is quaint, if a little grey due to the average age.
Should I know which side I am? I have no idea what's in what direction.
You know the name of the area?
Tadcaster Road, not far from the race course apparently.
Very quick to walk into town from there, and better than being at the York College / Tesco end of TR, which I can imagine getting annoying quickly.
My sister will be attending York college and much of our search was constrained to that area. Grrr.
Then it's probably a 15ish minute walk to the station, but Tadcaster Road is very, very long.
I just double checked and we're actually living on The Mount, and not Tadcaster Road.
15 minutes sound alright. Any hills? Buses?
You can get to the station in 10 minutes. Maybe less, I haven't walked that way for a while.
You're at the top of the hill. It's down towards the Tesco/college end. And if you walk the straight route in to town you go down a slight one. But nothing major - York doesn't really do hills. It's very, very flat. You won't need a bus to get into the centre. Just walk in a straight line (literally straight line, you don't need to turn anywhere at all) and you'll end up on the main shopping street. Or you can go via the station, and end up at the opposite end of the main town area. Probably equal enough distances. As for busses to elsewhere, you can get anywhere anywhere from town, and you can get a lot from right by The Mount.
for two different sets of secondary school students right at your door.
Thank you, you've been most informative.
Anywhere that isn't North Yorkshire or Cumbria.
East Sussex is where it's at
for that matter, good balance of country side, villages and activities
went to uni in chichester, quality county. Moving back soon.
I have never had a good time there
i was brought up in south cheshire and went there all the time - rubbish!
Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire, and Bucks. Hate Bucks.
becuase it has Dumbarton.
And North Ayrshire
because it has Irvine.
Are these counties?
as it has both basingstoke AND farnborough
berkshire, as it has the word berk in it, which is a word its inhabitants use quite a lot.
BERKSHIRE 4 LYFE
like 10 people live there
most counties have some nice parts, but I'm going to vote for South Yorkshire, because if it's got attractions, I've not seen them.
I meant Essex.
there's a place called the Vale of Belvoir and Belvoir Castle (both pronounced as beaver). Surely that's worth something?
Nobody lives there
CAN KISS MY DAMN BOTTOM
Staffordshire- nothing but ugly dogs and stoke.
