Wreckin, trekking, schlep­ping

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION - SUE VARLEY Elthorne Road Uxbridge

IN re­sponse to Bar­bara Fisher’s re­quest for lo­cal ex­pres­sions we grew up with (Gazette, Septem­ber 9) I still al­ways say ‘I’m go­ing round the Wrekin’ if I have a longish, or com­pli­cated jour­ney.

I spent the first twenty years of my life, (a long time ago] in Ellesmere, Shrop­shire.

I’m glad to know that say­ing has spread around as those of us from Shrop­shire, and Birm­ing­ham, who have moved and trav­elled around the coun­try!
