Don't hate it or anything...
but there's something you can't put your finger on about Derby.
I had to spend a whole day there. Everything about is was very weird. Tallington is a close runner up. No one really needs to go there.
everything you've read about the fens is true.
There's some fucking weirdy places round there. Parson Drove is my favourite in terms of weird fen-dwellers.
I do think Corby is the weirdest place I've ever been to though, its in Northamptonshire yet everyone is scottish. And mental.
never been there, but it sounds terrifying.
I have spent two New Year's Eves in Derby. Awful, awful times.
stuck out on it's own in a little corner. Really introverted and a bit irish.
It's also really shiny. Everything is covered in chrome and built at silly angles. This probably won them that culture capital thing.
Plus they have this boat ferry thing that can drive on the roads!
Liverpool has a statue of Ken Dodd and some old woman with an egg at Lime Street station. For that alone it's ace.
there's a funny look about them "weekurz"
So is this place near where I come from:
On a foggy day it's creepy.
'Here, we are on the edge of the world. The land is flat, the wind races over the Essex fields and the marshes echo with haunting bird cries. A long stretch of Roman road leads east from the village, becomes a track and then a path. At the end of this path, where the sea meets the sky, is the oldest church in England. St Peter's Chapel, Bradwell-on-Sea, was built to mark the spot where St Cedd landed in 654, on his mission from Lindisfarne to lighten the Dark Ages of the heathen East Angles.
Using bricks and stone from the ruined Roman fort of Othona, the Saxons created what was almost a cathedral, 50 ft (15.2m) long, 22 ft (6.7m) wide and 25 ft (7.6m) high. The people of Essex worshipped here for 600 years or more, but, so remote was this spot, that congregations soon dwindled and the chapel eventually passed out of knowledge, which is probably how it has survived. In 1920, a passing rambler noticed the noble proportions. He started to excavate and soon realised that he was looking at sacred ground. So St Peter's Chapel was restored as a place for peace and reflection. It is still a long way away from the rest of the world, but well worth the pilgrimage.'
was very strange....but i was also doing a lot of acid
now thats weird...
its just 2 wooden donkeys and a fountain that no longer works on top of some yellow tarmac thats meant to look like sand
i think its in wales. that looks very weird
it's really cool!
it's quite weird, but very scenic.
end of thread. SO MUCH end of thread.
