    This thread is going too fast...! :lol:

    From Stourbridge to Ivybridge. I wonder why?

    Two problems. One, Longbridge was a while ago, and 2, I used that exact association to leave Longbridge!

    Four Oaks and Coventry are both in the "West Midlands", as is Bilston.

    Done! :p

    Oh hold on, Paul's was Durham. Um...

    It links to Bilston because I've only ever been through it on public transport. (Worst association ever.)

    Interestingly Horsted Keynes is usually pronounced 'Canes', same as the economist which Milton Keynes IS NOT NAMED AFTER - MK is pronounced 'Keens' which comes from a village that is now part of the city.

    East Grinstead will join Horsted in being on the Bluebell.

    Soho is one of Birmingham's less salubrious areas which also happens to share it's name with a posh area of London, as does Highgate
