But do you ever want to come back for good? Does the homesickness get to that level? I guess it's always easier to think that the grass is greener, but home is always where the heart is. I will make Canada my home and become a good Canuck, but I'll still always be a Yorkshire lass as well!

I'm amazed they got a picture of the train station without some 14 year old girl with a pram face, 3 kids, smoking a tab, in leggings and with a Mike Skinner look-a-like boyfriend standing out front

But seriously Lion Chambers across the street is an even nicer building

Hahaha! It's not that bad! Lion Chambers is lovely, and I do love the station frontage, I just wish the train service matched up to that imposing exterior!!! Where in Hudds are you from LeedsGirl and Eskimo?

I'm from Birmingham but I married a Yorkshire lass so they took away my passport and I had to live in the Peoples Republic of Yorkshire (Scapegoat Hill to be exact) until we moved to LA - I think Huddersfield has some really great buildings and wonderful countryside, in fact until last night when we went for dinner at some friends place high in the hills around LA I had never been to anyones place who had a better view than our old one across the Colne Valley

I went to Sally Nook High too , I live on the top of the hill, just walk up the path by the Spotted Cow and up to Deer Croft Crescent

P.S. In case you haven't been back in the last few years, they've now bricked up the subway and put in a zebra crossing

I know exactly where you live They bricked up the subway I was only at Sally Nook for my final year of high school but many memories of the falling apart tennis courts and grass growing over the running track What's the name of the pub down by Greenhead Park by the tennis courts??

Yes, that's the one, the Junction. Have fallen out of there many times Sally Nook from 84-86, ten years difference in us.
