Newcastle is not a moderate city. Nothing moderate about it.

The very exclusive (if there is such a thing) suburb of Hull in East Yorkshire, down the road from Assem Allen and Eddie Healy.

Hull around 250k

I'd think there were no more than twenty people within 1 mile in any direction of where I live. Which is ace by the way!!
Same here. 4 miles to the nearest bus stop. 5 to the nearest shop. Bliss!
Just my wife and I within a 2 mile radius (and a couple of thousand sheep). 10 miles to a bus stop, 12 to shop, pub, petrol station , but there's a post box about 8 miles away and a phone box about 2.
Only about 50 miles from one of the UK's capital cities though.

Just over 20,000 here, but its a regional centre of sorts so has the facilities of a much larger town.

Small Village in the Chew Valley (SW of Bristol). About 1500 people I'd think ?
Which village? I went to school at Chew, and still like the area.

Now in a beachside suburb but not sure if I should note it as a major city (c.5m) or as being at the arse end of the planet...

Not sure how to vote on this.

I live in Huddersfield which has a population of about 150K but then I live out in the Holme Valley which has a population of 35k in the postal town of Holmfirth which is just over 5k and then I live in a village just outside Holmfirth which has a population of about 1,250. confused

I have family in Holmfirth. Lovely village. They're Battye's too as in Nora! Been pished many times in the little boozer with the downstairs room. Those were the days!

Leafy rural village of 1.5k folk In East Hertfordshire, 30 miles north of London. Rural, but very easy to get into London - 1hr 10 mins house door to desk in Blackfriars.
Gawd blimey! I remember when there were just 500.
That's why it's been renamed Much Hadham. wink

5,066 at the last census means I'm in OP definition of a small town: Chipping Sodbury. Really quite like it here - near enough to Bath/Bristol and close to M4 junction means civilisation is within easy reach, but rather more relaxed and plenty of green countryside on the doorstep.
