I have lived in a village now live close to the centre of a city and would never, never move back to a village.

I never shop in a supermarket, I have specialist shops on my doorstep. I can walk/bike to the cinema, concerts or theatre.

I love the Sunday papers!

I do more exercise in town than I ever did in the country just on everyday life.

We have great neighbours, we hardly use any petrol. Life is good.

I've recently moved to a small village in West Yorkshire. The village has two pubs, a tearoom and a post office/small shop, with a regular bus service to Hebden Bridge and Halifax. I can walk down the hill to Hebden Bridge in about 15 minutes (longer going uphill coming home) where there are small shops, more cafes, a cinema, library and buses and trains to more destinations.

People are friendly and welcoming, with a large number of incomers like me and my partner (I'm 54 and he's 47 and commutes to Manchester by train).

We moved from the Manchester area and the only regret is not having done it years earlier!
