I always punt away from where I live as I am sure most of you do, no shitting in own backyard !
I live 30 miles north of London, over the years generally go North or East (Peterborough, Northampton, Cambridge etc) however little in terms of what I call good quality.
I have always avoided London my perception is it is more risky full of gun totting drugs barons and prossies on crack
Am I being a pussy ? What is your experience ? More quality and variety ?
