In Gunnislake, we have Higher Dimson, Lower Dimson and North Dimson.

What happened to South, West and East, I ain't got a clue. Could have fallen down a tin mine shaft maybe. :lol:

We have Nether Kellet and Over Kellet near us. Over Kellet is the nicer village.

The names must refer to altitude.

Two Welsh hills.
Glyder Fach (The small Glyder) is higher than Glyder Fawr (the big Glyder)!
Glyder Fawr looks bulkier.

Mountains, please: no no, Glyder Fawr is higher but
Bera Mawr (794 m) near Abergwyngregyn is lower than Bera Bach (807 m)
BM is nearer the village so it looks bigger from there :wink:

I have cycled through both a hundred times (or thereabouts). Once I stopped in Over K to eat a cake whilst sat on a bench on the green. Only once, mind. One learns every hole, verge-crumble, slippery drain and queer camber of such places as a result of them being on the main in/out route to other places. Yet sitting on that bench the one time, I saw many other aspects of wider Nether K I'd never noticed before.

Before long there'll be several local Welsh villages of which I'll know every grain of gravel on their roads. But at the moment there's still a few hundred miles of do-able back roads I have yet to traverse. In NW England, there were none left I'd not been down. Even the fell road cul-de-sacs up into the dead ends with a farm at the top have all been visited at least once. Perhaps this was my subconscious reason for moving? :-)

Family lived in OK and my rides used to start with a ride down one of the hills to the crossroads. Usually down to Arnside and Silverdale on a self created time trial route I liked. Overall time improvements and beating my 58mph record were the two obsessions over that route. :D

I nearly bought a 200 year old terraced cottage in OK once. Amazing view to Warton Crag.
