    Devon and Cornwall = safe
    Cambridge = *grudgingly* second "home"
    Hampshire = hell hole
    Everywhere else = Not as nice as the Westcountry
    I live in Hampshire at the mo. Its not that bad, the New Forest is really pretty.

    I'd say that the North West begins at the bottom of cheshire. Well thats according to North West Tonight, with TV's own Krypton Factor Gordon Burns.
    I haven't seen North West Tonight before, I like watching other regions news because I like laughing at the cheesy presenters and how they talk about trivial things such as naming of trams.

    I'd say North: Cheshire, bit of Stoke, Yorkshire and a bit of Lincs.

    You misjudged my sarcasm. Uppingham cant even produce quality rugby players these days.
    Ooops. I thought you were being serious because of its two private schools - don't forget Oakham

    Both them schools are cheating f*cks. They get all the Leicster Youth players when they are 16 by offering them 'scholarships'. Still get rinsed by Lancs/Yorks teams though

    Rugby is a wasted force. Kirkham Grammar beat them in the last game. Kirkham are good (namely in the forwards), but they cant compete with the other schools top schools on the Northern circuit. Sedbergh, Stonyhurst and B Castle often rip them to shreads with their more mobile packs.

    The wastelands are just peachy, we're not overcrowded and full of beggars and homeless like some southern cities *cough* London *cough* and actually have good public transport!

    Comedy southerners the other day asking me where Sunderland is. "Is it near Leeds or near Scotland?"
    LOL. That is really amusing.

    But then again I don't know where all the SouthWest/West Midlands counties are.

    But geographical speaking we are not, if you look on the map of England Manchester is the Midlands. In terms of UK we are actually 'down south'.

    I think as Pinga says it is places like Cumbria that are north west though that often gets counted as the north.
    Clitheroe, about 3/4 of an hour drive from Manchester, is exactly at the centre of the United Kingdom.

    The centre of England is somewhere near Rugby, in Warwickshire.

    I agree, but its probably the same distance to the Scots border on the east coast, as it is to Land's End in Cornwall.

    This map shows terrritorial division.

    The purple bits on that map are the ones where I have half a chance of naming the areas correctly - the red and the yellow ones are the scary Northerly wastelands where I haven't a clue!

    Your map is wrong.
    Norfolk, Sussex, Essex and Cambridgeshire are in East Anglia, in the same region.
    Cheshire is in the North West.
    Humberside doesn't exist, this is East Yorkshire.
    T&W is now Northhumberlad
    The North of Lincolnshire is in the north, Yorkshire & Humber Region.


    Just thought I'd point this out. This is a better version:

    That map is just daft as there is no way the North West can border the East Midlands? The East Midlands has places like Northampton in it which is near Bedfordshire. Bedfordshire is down south without a doubt.
