We are considering relocating to Norwich where I grew up, having lived in a medium size town half an hours train ride from Central London for the last 30 years.
My main worry is that we would be leaving behind our 27 year old son and his partner who live close by (no children yet...) and would also be about 2 hours drive further away from our daughter and teenage grandchildren who already live 140 miles away. Also many of our friends are local.However we also have a son who lives with his wife and her child near Norwich.
We want to move as property is a bit cheaper, we love the city and also the proximity of countryside and the coast. We are fit and active in our mid 60s.
Have any gransnetters relocated after a long time in the same place? What were your experiences? Any advice welcome-a hard decision to make!
