My Introduction To Buckfastleigh

Posted by buck on

buckHaving lived in multiple countries and having visited many more, there are a few that stand out in my mind as some of the most interesting places and Buckfastleigh remains very high on my list over all of these years. For those of you who are living in the states like myself currently, Buckfastleigh is a small town in England that many people have not heard of and even fewer have lived there.

Hard Times in Buckfastleigh

I was born just outside of London, England and my family packed up and moved to Buckfastleigh when I was around 7 years old because my father lost his job and we lived there for almost 10 years before we finally got out. I used the phrase “got out” mostly because my family was very poor during these times and a lot of Buckfastleigh consisted of people who did not have a lot of money. I don’t want to sound like I am talking down about the town or the people living there at all in any of the posts I decide to write about so if at all I come across as if though I am, I would like to apologize in advance.

I have learned a lot during my time living in this small town and wanted to bring this page back to try and teach a little bit about the country as well as some of my experiences living there.
