Just something that's been on my mind in the past and wondered what it would be like moving areas.
If you have moved, where did you move to and from and what were your reasons for moving and has the move been beneficiail or detremental to your lifestyle etc?

Yes I have. I moved to Nottinghamshire from Hertfordshire. I moved because where I was living was rubbish and it was the only place I could get somewhere else. I hated it, full of crime and drugs. I moved back now and much happier!

We have moved twice over the last few years.

We moved from Cheshire to Cornwall a few years back. This was supposedly for a more healthier lifestyle but due to the general pressures of day-to-day life there, it didn't really work out. Also, the place was a dump to live in.

Last year, we moved out of Cornwall to Dorset where we have the best of both worlds, living by the sea, good jobs, good lifestyle etc and great for our 2 kids, but also good financially to afford the usual things in life.

If you're thinking of doing it, just do it as life is too short t o ponder on 'what ifs'.

However, from my experience, I would also say don't do anything on the spur of the moment, spend a bit of time at the place you are thinking of moving to before you move and do your rsearch - jobs, housing etc. Also, try and get some connection there like mates, job etc before you do move because that makes a world of difference and gives you something to move to.

Good luck.

Col.

I moved from Staffordshire to Hertfordshire to be with a girl after 7 years of a long distance relationship. We have been married for 10 months now. Best move i ever made! Has down sides like I dont get to see friends and family as often as i want and making my own friends down here has been difficult, you know, work work work! We live in a little village and i have to admit im a towny so get really bored sometimes! This village doesnt even have a chippy!

Lived in Cleveland ( think it's now under Teeside ? ) Hertfordshire,Buckhamshire & Kent,can't say much about it as mainly was when I was a kid. I noticed that education seemed different from school to school,and kids seemed different from town to town too,some more friendlier than others.
Missed out on a lot of education as moved about to much,barely staying at some schools for 6mths,parents moved to get work and to be awkward!
My parents are no better off for it,I wouldn't say they benefited at all,and neither have I been because of moving around a lot,been to 6 primary schools.

Great story...even though it sounds like it's hard to adapt...I can tell you've made a sacrafice purely for the relationship and you're loving it. Congrats on your marriage and for being brave. :thumbsup:

That's the trouble of constantly moving...I don't recommend it because people love stability but I hope it's worth it once you've found the perfect place to keep everyone happy. :-D

Lol Hucknall just as bad - I went to look at a reception venue there a few days after that man murdered his daughter! So glad to be back here now. Mansfield is full of druggies and low lifes and so never ever want to go back

as a child, my dad was in the RAF and for the first 12 years of my life I have lived in 9 different parts of this country and also abroad. Taught me to make friends quickly :) but as an adult I have only lived in Nottingham, various areas, and TBH unless it was due to OH's job relocation I wouldnt move from here again........until he retires.

Born in Middlesborough and move to Notts at 8 yrs old (family came too :p) Only wish I were older when it happened as then I may have coped with the bullying over my accent a little better.
#22
Moved from Bermondsey, South London to Essex. Moved to get away from the yellow signs on the corners of the roads that said, rape, mugging, assault etc etc. Now live in a nice little town with no yellow signs - downside is that its full of Westham Supporters...... Cant have it all can you....LOL

LOL really that bad huh, nottingham city is very nice, loads of shops, bars and clubs love it.
#27
Well, has anyone moved from the countryside to the city or viceversa?
That's probably one of the biggest differences in lifestyle, as like some others have said, cities are quite similar to other cities. :)

Nowhere, just asking in general. :)

I come from central London and love the conveniences and all the entertainment available but I've also visited the countryside and although it does seem less lively...I have been taken in the beauty of the peace... tranquility...and amazing landscapes...it's actually quite inspiring. :)

Have lived for a few years in London, a few years in Wales, a few years in the North West, a few years in Northern Ireland and several years abroad. Change is good - :)
