i live in a village called Wellington. southwest of England.

i was playing the wikipedia game, and i was on my villages page. and i found out that the Wellington Boot was invented here!

to be honest i should of seen it from the name 'Wellington' Boot.

but still. not bad is it.

Wellington gave its name to the first Duke of Wellington, Arthur Wellesley, and boasts a large obelix to his honour, spotlit, on top of the closest hill to the town, the Wellington Monument. This is now separated from the town by the major motorway in the South-West, the M5. Because of this, Wellington, Somerset can have a legitimate claim to have contributed to the more widespread use of the term in other place names and, of course, the Wellington Boot.


is your town famous for anything?

You wouldn't believe how excited I got when I saw the word 'Wellington' in this, I live in Wellington, but it's in the Mid west. I thought I had a friend nearby me
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

Hottest recorded summer in the UK, or something like that.

During the hot summer of 1983, Liphook hit the headlines as the hottest spot in the United Kingdom

Look it up. It's quite fascinating once you've learned to spot it and use it for your own good.
