My small village in Devon. Not particularly famous for much or anyone. 

However - it has a small Doctors surgery. 
My own Dr for the last few years, I recently found out is a certain Dr Harold Shipman’s daughter. 
 

(went elsewhere for the Covid jabs though 😜)

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

Mustn't blame the daughter for the actions of her father. I'm sure she has had a thoroughly tough time of it and at times a very miserable life having to deal with his actions when people find out who she is.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Whitehaven, Cumbria here. A town rather than a village. Still, it is the scene of the last invasion of a foreign nation on UK/GB Soil (Obvs the Falklands is more recent but a tad away from oop North).

Who was responsible you ask? John Paul Jones, 1778, founder of the American navy :o

My Home village Holt was famous for a few things.....Prince Phillip would have his private train carriage backed onto an old section of track off the main line and meet his mistresses there. Charles met princess Di there a few times before they were married, no doubt a few others as well 🙂

 

Other than that, it was well known for wife swapping haha usually blamed on the Chamois leather factory water leaking into the water table 🙂

 

Oh and the Pomagne 24 hour lawn mower race in the 70s. That was great fun.

Spot on. Exactly why I didn’t mention the village or her name.
