    I've lived in Wolverhampton for over 20 years but was born near Sheffield in the West Riding of Yorkshire and even with time in between spent in Herefordshire and Gloucestershire, people still can pick out the Yorkshire in my accent.

    And for you Lancastrians out there, if you look at a map Yorkshire is definitely the right side of the Pennines.

    What a beautiful part of the world, I spent 3 weeks in Ceredigion with work, I stayed in New Quay and spent my evenings dolphin watching or walking along beautiful beaches. You're very lucky to live there :)

    so do you see the guys at the Bournemouth diabetes and endocrine centre then? I am under that umberella but couldn't keep doing the drive there due to my chronic fatigue syndrome etc....more local to me now but still keep in touch with Bournemouth to see if they will let me try something else to make things better

    No, I'm actually under Poole's Diabetes Clinic rather than Bournemouth because of my postcode. Sometimes I wish it was Bournemouth because of the super-specialist/research team but I have no complaints about Poole! :happy:
