It's supposedly a town but the population is a fraction over 2000 so in really just a small village.

I live in a village of 2000. Having lived in suburbia for 40 years beforehand I enjoy the peace and quiet and I like seeing the same people around all the time, there’s a sense of community here that you don’t get in bigger places.

Bristol (Outskirts) Fab city.
It has its plus points. Hopefully we'll still be able to drive into it when they finally finish the roadworks.

You'd better let Nicola know then, because either she's confused or you are.

FWIW I'm in Glasgow. Actual Glasgow, although naturally also Greater Glasgow as well. Even though it doesn't exist.

Considering I live in the center of Southampton and get less than that yet my dad lives in (as classed by this threads definitions) "The arse end of nowhere" yet gets more than that.... you could be anywhere.

A post box? Show off!

The nearest post box to me is about 4 miles away frown

There are probably about a dozen houses within a quarter mile or so of me though so rush hour can be a nightmare.

There is definitely a category missing from this thread.

The village I grew up in is about average for a village, so I checked the population and it has just over 1000 people.

Friends of mine truly live in the arse end of nowhere and other than a few other houses you would have to drive for 10 mins to reach the nearest shop.

Really? And that's the fastest you can get? That's fibre to the cabinet, and then 2km of copper to the house.

Looking @ the poll it looks like London and Roseland haven't been able to vote yet. Still stuck on the Friday commute I'll be bound.

That's not the arse end of nowhere.

It's the arse end of somewhere.
