    Why that far down? Something a bit centrally located between Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset, Cornwall, Devon would be easier?

    Exeter for one is quite central, bar far right Wiltshire, Bristol as well, quite easy to get trains anywhere in the South West to Bristol, and the likes.

    I'd say somewhere near Exeter would be good - not overly far away and easily accessible to pretty much all the south west counties.

    Going down Cornwall way would be a problem - it is miles away from everywhere else in the SW...

    Hear Hear!! Or maybe a bit further east up the M4 if you think that there are some in Hants, Sussex or the like who might like to come?
