I believe Cymaz lives up the road St Austell area. Certainly can't beat the surf here with those Atlantic rollers pouring in on the backend of Irma. Staying in The Unicorn, do you think you might be getting mixed up with Perranporth re the pub on the beach, The Wateringhole?

Re the best place to live Erfolg is your home and where your family are. Without any restrictions of all the places I have been it would be Singapore as was 40 odd years ago.

In my case it was defiantly Porthtowan, always wanted to go back, afraid that the memories do not match todays reality.

It must be great to live in the area, as long as you can afford it.

Erfolg....confession timeclock

Yes I do live in Cornwall- Bodmin to be exact. The photo was taken at St. Andrews , Blunsdon, Swindon. My wife's local church. When alive, my mother was not well enough to travel so the wedding was down in Cornwall. So I have made good the promise that one day my wife would have a service of some sort at her own church. Very emotionalcrying

If it were not for my grandchildren we would be down there with you.

As a compromise, we live about 200 yards from the sea, although nothing compares with all aspects of Cornwall. Oh, that excludes St Austell, where the China Clay workings are.

Another memory from St. Agnes (another time), the pub that they have or had there, just up from the beach, had Queen on as a performers. They were on a holiday tour so they said, obviously unknown then. May be a different line up, but they were already good. Talking with them, they had difficulty getting paid, as they had the place really rocking, sound up to the max. No beer being sold= reluctance to pay.

yes, Cornwall is the place to be, particularly when young. Pity about the workcrying 2

Yep, having the kids and grandkids nearby is a wonderful thing. Otherwise, now I'm not tied by work, I'd look to move away from the crowded south-east. They seem determined to concrete over Berkshire, so flying space is very precious. We take a quiet autumn holiday in north Norfolk. Driving around there, it's quite common to not see any buildings at all under those big skies.

Yes, I know, I should be grateful in Cornwall. However, ( I can hear the guns being loaded), low wages,low job prospects, unreasonably high house prices, poor infrastructure, high fuel and food prices, low rates of funding per school pupil, villages like ghost towns in the winter( just visit Constantine Bay in late January- might as well put a barrier across the road). A cocktail for difficult  living.....The place is great for childhood, growing up and "nice" for a retirement.

And I wait to be shot down in flames.embarrassed. We moved from the edge of civilisation into Bodmin when the kids were babes. So that they could go to friends around the corner, have after school clubs, Scouts, Army Cadets, etc,etc. It was the best move we did. Some of the places I go to on my delivery rounds with Jewsons...well forget having a fire engine or ambulance there in under 20 mins! On a busy Saturday night an ambulance was called for my wife....70 mins later it arrived. This is the middle of Bodmin surprise

I think house prices are often surprisingly high in many parts of the country. London prices are well known for being high. Yet many will be surprised to hear that in the South Manchester region they are high, it is the fact that there are jobs. Where I now live, they are very high, because it is relatively nice, whereas a few miles along the coast, the prices are much lower, I will not bother explaining why.

This is a region I know reasonably well, and recognise, that if you want to live, south of the Scottish border, many of the places you want to live, you pay to do so. I guess the rest of the UK is much the same.

I am glad now that I have moved from south Manchester, as what free spaces there are, have now been designated for planned building, so what was left of the Green Belt, is going. When I was young, most of the Altrincham area was surrounded by fields. During the 70s building boom, the fields that I played on, or around, were built on. Now many would not believe that the miles of housing were quite recently fields. The dirt track, that was at the end of my road, became a major thoroughfare.

Soon Truro will be a suburb of London, if the trend continues.

Erfolg, did you ever go to Altringham Show in the old days, there was sure plenty of grass about then.
