When I read Freeport, it reminds me of this mine in Indonesia. What a nice walk Nathen, I didn't know there's this cheerful bit of UK because from what I've been told it's always somber and dark. I recently watched This is England, it was a bit depressing 😂 but I guess that film is pretty popular.

Lol...the first time I've seen England judged upon that film! You're a star :-)

Inner city areas can be depressing like every big city in the world but generally, UK is really beautiful , especially on gorgeous clear days with cornflower blue skies. This was in October!

The problem here is the weather is all over the place, regardless of forecasts it's complete guesswork but personally , I love September October and january as although it can be bitterly cold, you get these amazing skies and sunshine.

Come over, somewhere else you'd love!

This is England....oh lord!

Think Notting Hill or Love Actually or try looking for The rise and fall of Little Voice, set in my favourite location Scarborough or for a real slice of Northern Social history and an incredible film, Brassed Off.

I want to hear you speak with a Yorkshire accent :-)

lol lol I was recommended that film and it was actually pretty sad too. A young boy who was bullied, embraced by skinhead then rest is history. When I actually watched that I was expecting it something like American X but actually it's not. I'll check the rest you mentioned and will eventually write a review on it too!
