Year 3, week 21: Crackington Haven

Oh, the important things we all get up to whilst sitting around in chambers waiting for our briefs to arrive. Yesterday afternoon and a bunch of us were all waiting in the clerks room gossiping. “What are you up to this weekend?” I asked TheVamp.
“Oh, I’m going to Crackington Haven, near Bude,” she said.
“I don’t know whether it’s just because you’re saying it or not, but that just sounds rude,” said TheBusker smiling, before adding, “and now, that place will be forever etched in my mind as associated with you!”
BusyBody laughed and joined in: “Well, I’d take Giggleswick,” given the choice.
“Or Wittering,” said TheCreep.
“Snig’s End for you,” TheVamp said in response, “or how about Mumbles or even better Little Snoring.”
“Yes, and Madchute for the stretched one,” piped in OldSmoothie. “Or Cockermouth, perhaps?” he added looking very pleased with himself. “Though I once visited a place called Clenchwarton. Now that really does fit, wouldn’t you say?”
“You’d be something like Bishop’s Itchington or Mold,” said BusyBody. “Or even Six Mile Bottom or Nether Wallop, come to think of it.”
Then OldRuin appeared from the other side of the room and dispersed any tension that might have been building with: “You know, I’ve always liked the sound of Melbury Bubb myself. Sounds like the most delicious kind of Summer pudding.”

    As a first year Law student it is good to know that the lovely town of Mold (my hometown!) Isn’t forgotten in the world of Law!

    It has to be Wetwang, in the East Riding. It’s on the road to Bridlington.
