Which place do you miss from your childhood?

This place. The Arndale Bus Station in Manchester, UK. The Arndale is a shopping mall and from 1979-1996 it had this huge undercover Bus Station. It was dark, cosy and overwhlemed you with diesel fumes. Yes, Im a nerd 馃槀

A hidden little beach, only 12 - 15 or so meters long.

It was awesome - by high summer, the water there would warm up a bit... We'd hang out on the beach nearly all night if there was a full moon.

Freakin' magical!... The moonlight would shine off the water.... Which often becomes stiller at night.
If the water was calm enough - we'd melt candles to big pieces of fallen bark - and put them on th water. If the tide was coming in, we'd swim out - and leave them off shore a bit, and they'd slowly come back in.

Wow... I'd forgotten this... Nice idea of a post - thanks! 馃槉

I havent been to Cornwall since I was 18. And even then it was Newquay so it doesnt count.

[@1016515,TheDarknessHasFallen] It was a hit that year. I was 15 in 1993 and I loved M People as much then as I do now.

I'm from Manchester and I remember that bus station well. You are the first person I've heard calling himself a "nerd" though, it's not a word we use in my social circle.

[@837854,HeadGirl] I must be americanized lol. Yes! Im glad someone remmbers this!. The chippy in there was great! and the cafe at the other side :)

[@1016515,TheDarknessHasFallen] We have been Americanised in some ways. The school I went to has a sisterhood (known as a sorority in America). That idea came from American culture. But we're still British in most ways and we still talk about the chippy. Lol :)
