Which bit would you consider to be your bit Gibbo :?: Birmingham's a big place, and a bit like Newcastle the bits even though they join together in urban continuum, the bits have their own distinctive loyalties and character.

Bought back lots of memories for me. I lived in Sutton Coldfield, but worked from an office in the centre
of Brum for a couple of years & then joined Ansells brewery as a trainee manager,
I did numerous relief duties around the city before getting my first pub, the Pelican, in Newtown.

I was born and brought up in Kingstanding Neil but know pretty well all of the places mentioned having done part time work as a bread roundsman's assistant when I was twelve onwards.
There's another video following on from that one done by the BBC.

Funny Forester123 you and I from less than five miles apart in Brum should finish up in the Forest of Dean.

Having visited Brum on many occasions and the Forest of Dean on quite a few I am not at all surprised! :-D
