      Hi Lucy – right now I live in Southampton, which is about two hours away. But I grew up in Wellington, which is right on the Devon / Somerset border. My parents still live there, and I often go back to visit them.

      When I was growing up, my friends and I used to spend a lot of time at Putsborough beach near Woolacombe at weekends in summer – and that meant driving by South Molton on the A361 to get there. Going along that road, across the southern side of Exmoor, is still one of my favourite drives! I’d love to move back to that part of the world, if I could find a job there still doing what I do here.

      Hi Lucy,
      Nope, I live up North, in Manchester, but I used to live in Bath, and I visited Devon many times when I lived there as I had some friends in Exeter. It’s a beautiful part of the world!
