Alright, I hail from Weston-super-Mare, a coastal town in Somerset which isn't so great, but Somerset is a cool place. I mean, we have lovely towns like Clevedon and even the UK's smallest city, Wells. And hell! My Dad was brought up in Cheddar (I used to work there actually in a small gift shop on the gorge). Yeah, the town that brought you the famous cheese

Yet, the South West has more charm than people think with the likes of the coasts of Cornwall and the city of Exeter

Not to mention we drink more cider than any other regional area in the UK (UK drink more than anyone else in the world, making us kings) and are well famous for our scrumpy And if you're not a fan of that, our proper ales from Devon and Cornwall always make a great treat

Show the South West of England love

Go Somerset, I'm from a small village outside Bath, and I surround myself in cider and cheddar. In fact, I'm going to brew my own cider this autumn, in time for the summer; which will be one hell of an adventure.

I do think the West Country is one of the best parts of Britain, even with the cult-like druid aspects of places like Devon and Cornwall, it adds to the charm.

Also, have any of you heard of a thing called the 'Somerset Triangle'? It's an area in Somerset, which Bath is just in, in which, if you drink a pint of the local cider in any of the pubs, you go missing for three weeks.

Anyone up for some scrumping?


Yes indeed; it'll be a hell of a lot cheaper than buying a barrel-ful of apples at the supermarket. And much more fun, running through local orchards, two guys picking apples, the third following up with a wheel barrow, and a fourth in a tiny car at the entrace of the field, ready for a really unsteady getaway, before the fat, red-faced beardy farmer shoots us.

I want to do it sometime, before they die of a scrumpy induced death. I remember on scout trips, the leaders would play them at full volume in the minibus throughout the whole journey, brilliant fun.

I always remember one line: "She grabbed me gooseberries, so fluffly and so light," I howled when I first heard that.

They played at my school and did that. My principal was watching and was stunned. The old ladies were loving it.

This needed a bump.

On a cider note, my neighbour recently bought a deserted playground in my neighbourhood, and they're thinking of turning it into an orchard. SCRUMPING AHOY!

God, I love all these pagan traditions around here. I bet Straw Dogs has occurred a few times in Cornwall or Dorset.

I like the southwest. Only problem is I heard there's this big green dinosaur walking around the place . . . . . . . . But the scrumpy is real good. My friend brought back a big bottle of the best scrumpy in the god-damn world from cornwall. I love cider. . . . . . .
