    Hmmm, a bit of a blanket; but pretty much in the centre of that patch is Melton Mowbray where I grew up.

    Cool!

    I'm not a native English speaker, but the influences were caught very well: Southern England by pronunciation (RP, education) and Ireland by vocab (my location in the last few years). I'm based in Cork but Galway isn't a great miss at all -- it reflects the Irish influence in general, as on daily basis I still deal with internationals rather than locals.
    I'm sorted and so not buying any more watches.
