Bit vague that one.  I looked on the map of the UK and it was only described as the North!  Enlighten me lovely Northerners.  ;D

EJ you could have North of England west of the Pennines and East of the Pennines but that could be a bit divisive. ;)

I'm in Chester.

Creckless, I lived in Poynton for a couple of years - loved living there, but wasn't interested in allotments at the time.

I was born in Cheadle Hulme, and my brother is headteacher at Poynton Vernon school! I moved across the pennines a long time ago, via Scotland!

Mine's in Sacriston which is a small ex-mining village just south of Chester Le Street in Durham where they have the famous Riverside Cricket Ground.

There's loads of lottie sites near and around here, but I rekon I'm the only one on this forum for miles and miles :D

Depends on where you live really.  If you live near London it seems to start from Milton Keynes, but if you live up near me it starts at about Harrogate IMO!  ;)

I think that unofficially (and ridiculously) it starts at about Derby which is Midlands really!

Pea Road!  What a fantastically appropriate name for an allotment site!
