Country of Birth.


Hi to everyone out there, i was just wondering whether anyone( from the old country ) lives in the area i used to live in, in the U.K.?

I came from a place called Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria, the North West of England.

Just wondering.

Regards Elaine.

Hello Elaine. You've moved a long way. I live in South Wales - not near Barrow-in-Furness although I've heard of it. Nice to hear from you anyway.

Hello Elaine ~
Am I right that you have an aviary ?
Would love to see photos of that if you ever have an opportunity, please.
Cumbria is a pretty part of the UK.
I'm sure some members are near to that area.
Do you miss England, or are you well-settled ?

Hi Elaine, I live just about straight across the country from Cumbria. I used to work for a company whose head office was in Barrow and went there once. We've been a few times to Port Carlisle for holidays and love the area although it seems to be wet alot of the time, lol. suppose that helps with the lovely greenery though. It's a nice place and we're hoping to spend a bit more time travelling around there this year.

Hello Elaine,
I am originally from Ulverston, only 8 miles from Barrow. I try to 'go home' at least once a year. I still have an aunt and several cousins in Barrow and another aunt in Kendal.
My grandparents were from very large families, all of them living in Barrow.
Welcome from me too.
