What constitues local?

18th September 2017
In an ever connected world what constitutes "being local"? For me the "hour to Cirencester" gives me a glorious swathe of the northern Cotswolds, north Oxfordshire and South Warwickshire to play with.

Yet an hour east or north takes me to where exactly - I admit to not really finding out, familiarity definitely plays its part.

The Cotswolds and South Warwickshire are a natural draw for tourists on a "whistlestop" tour of the UK. North Warwickshire, Leicestershire and even Northamptonshire don't feature. The gently undulating landscape of this hinterland surely holds hidden gems, maps and scenes to be studied over winter.
