Where I am from and where I am are two different things...

I am from (as in born and raised) in the vicinity of Manchester,
England, Dukinfield to be exact.

I am now in London, England, WC1E to be exact.

Born: Sheffield, England, though lived my first 2yrs 9mths in North Anston, 20miles north of Sheffield. Have lived in Sheffield since (parents presently live near Dore, which has some historic relevance which I presently can't remember), though I'm currently studying in Portsmouth. Count me as a Sheffielder, though, as I miss the hills.

Sheffield famous for? Stainless Steel and Michael Palin amongst others.

Oh, and I hope you don't mind but I'll avoid the fried elk - I'm vegetarian. Though I think there's one or two people at Mercedes who might be interested...

Plymouth is famous for Dawn French, Beryl Cook (I think that's the name), and various historic events.

And what exactly is that slashdot.org thing about?

Great thread this - could go on for ages. Just to keep it going, I'm from the Isle of Wight (pronounced as white and often misspelled that way too) which is just off the south coast of England. Anyone else out there from islands?

Researcher 93445

And now the moment very few of you have been waiting for...

As always, for those of us who listed multiple places, I chose the
current residence (assuming I could figure out which one that is),
unless the researcher emphatically specified some other city as
home. If you snuck a response into the conversation somewhere up
above and I missed it it's your own fault.

NEW! If you'd like to see a spiffy and pointless pie chart of
these results, c'mon over and visit my researcher page.

This thread has now got long enough for me to tangle. Like Technicolor Yawn 3 weeks ago i live in a small village in Lincolnshire (except that I'm currently working in Hong Kong. I got here via ('most recent first' as they say on job application forms) Bulgaria, Australia, Poland, Shanghai, Cameroon, Lesotho, Malawi, Ethiopia, and Switzerland from the University of Leeds, with two years out in London and Birmingham to enable me to get the bits of paper I needed to teach Engliah as a foreign language
