It sometimes feels like it but, no, I am originally from Wiltshire. At the moment I live in a county where they are called 'yellerbellies'. Where are you from lynnibis?

I am in Essex by the sea but definitely not an Essex girl! I moved to Wiltshire last year to grow old with my lovely sister. Packed up house to await completion of sale and started looking down there while living with sis. Long story short, house sale fell through, missed grandchildren and had them crying on phone so packed back up and went home again lol. Staying put now but did love Wiltshire, lots of history.

Yes, it is Wiltshire but not Swindon. Where are you from Johnny and what are you 'called'?

Lovely part of England, Wiltshire.

Hard to say. I'm a Londoner I guess, but not a Cockney.

Johnny I left Wiltshire when I was only about 2 years old so I don't know it well at all. I agree it must be harder to find out what you are 'called' in non Bow Bells London.

I am originally a Nairnite. Although you wouldn't know it as everyone always asks what part of Northern Ireland I am from as apparently I have adopted my husbands accent!

Born and bred in the West Midlands. I have visited Wiltshire loads of times and it's a beautiful county.
