    I was born in Newton Abbott and brought up in nearby Teignmouth, moved to Southampton when I was 7. Don't know North Devon so well and have only ever passed through Exeter on a train. As you say it's a lovely part of the World and i've been back several times to visit relatives and the beaches on the English Riviera.

    No Saints_Alive - born in Surrey, moved down with family to Portsmouth when I was 11. I just love the West Country (mainly the South Hams & Torbay) from holidays as a kid, and then taking my own children there when they were young. Have been to Plainmoor a number of times when Torquay have played Pompey in pre-season games. Quaint little ground. Don't like Plymouth much though :D
