Where Is Peterborough?


Recommended Posts

I see in the Caravan club mag that the two CL winners for the North Region are in Carlsisle and. .....................Peterborough. I expect this kind of London-centric thing for MPs but surprised at the Club. Not so surprised to see the subs up yet again.

Whoops, elementary spelling error, sorry Cumbrians. Carlisle, somewhere north of Peterborough.

Almost as good as London Southend Airport and "Northampton, for London" on the trains!

It's an uncharted sea, it's an unopened door but you've got to reach out and you've got to explore.

Well Peterborough is 130 miles north of East Grinstead, a drive of about two and a half hours, hardly "London centered" !

Carlisle is even further north, in fact its almost in Scotland

Most residents inside the M25 would probably take a flask and sandwiches, as well as a snow shovel, blanket, torch and a dictionary to visit Peterborough as it's not on any of the tube maps!

Carlisle is an adventure, usually marked on (older) maps as 'undiscovered'

CL of the year is voted for by the people who stop on them I. e. the members. ....

I should think that finding this made Henry's day! Given that for this competition there were only two Rgions - North and South I guess it was 50/50 where you placed Peterborough.

Henry, if you can bear it, keep trawling through the 106 pages of the magazine there's bound to be something else to complain about. ...

If Carlisle is near London, then I'm a dutchman!

Leaving London the road signs say Watford and the North - so once you are past Watford surely you are in the North . . .

I think Peterborough has been relocated to Poland, or is that, Poland has been relocated to Peterborough? ;)

Well the point I was trying to jocularly make is that I thought it was weird there were only two regions for the whole competition.

Well I went to shop in Peterborough, for some walking kit, last month & the usage instructions were in just English & Polish.

Those posting the racist jokes should perhaps know the there are probably more Lithuanian and Latvians in Peterbourgh than Poles.

 

Funny how no one complained about Poles flying our fighter planes in 1940.

Has the revolution finally begun?

Some complained that they were over claiming their "kills" until someone followed them & verified how they were achieving the extra "kills".

They were getting in closer before firing.

 

I'm not aware of a poll about relative numbers of various nationalities. There do seem to be more shops for Poles but that is not conclusive.

How would the relative numbers matter?

As the north /south border in England is around Nottingham, Peterborough is most definitely in the South. Therefore, like all towns and cities in the south, it is a greater London suburb !!!.
