They didnít hold back.  ;D

 ;D I wish we could " Like " posts, on here!

About fifteen years ago now, read a cracking report, written in the seventeen hundreds, about my home town of Portsmouth.

From memory, it went very much like:

" Portsmouth is a vile place. Mired in pestilence. And peopled largely by Gypsys and Foot Pads. "

I thought; " Not much has changed then. "  ;D

" So, what? " Ye may well be thinking. Well; That was a couple of hours ago. And this is the first time in my life I've ever even Looked in this board!  8)

 :) Cheers, peeps. Swine, isn't it? Certainly looks like Cheddar, in Glos. But, the actual Cheddar is well south of even Bristol. It most certainly is ~ and always has been ~ firmly within Somerset.

Shaun's Chedworth is a beauty. Very much in Glos. Just seems stretching it a bit, again, to think anyone could confuse Chedworth with Cheddar  :-\

Dunno. Guy was in Exeter Gaol, as it happens. (Doesn't make us any the wiser, does it?!  ;D)

Just banging my head against my all time brick wall, again. Going over some old notes.

Christ, my head hurts! Again!

Thanks, all  ;)

 ??? Curious. AVERY tends to catch my eye. Because, one of my lads ~ inexplicably born in London ~ married an Avery, from Sussex.

They married in Portsmouth ~ what should be my boys natural home town.

Never have fathomed how all that's supposed to link up. Paper work can't be denied, so, there it is.

S'pose, thinking about it though, there would have been Avery's all over the place.
