Neverending Top Ten #4.0: Corkhill Drive

The other day, a question came up in conversation with Sam about where he might live when he was grown up.

He immediately answered, "Corkhill Drive."

After my initial thought that if this particular drive was in any way related to Jimmy Corkhill, he'd be better off keeping away or he'd end up addicted to smack and getting threatened by small time gangsters all over Liverpool... I thought perhaps this was a road he'd seen while we were driving around. Sam has a pretty good memory for signs he's read when we're out and about.

Louise decided to investigate, and put Corkhill Drive into Google Maps... but the only one she could find was in the gorgeous town of Tilba Tilba, New South Wales.

These photos give you a taste of what it might be like to live on Corkhill Drive... and I think we'd all agree that Sam has chosen well.

But where the hell has he got Corkhill Drive from? Louise's brother lives in Brisbane, but that's a long way from New South Wales, and he'd never heard of Tilba Tilba either.

All I can say is, I hope Sam lets his old man come visit.

I couldn't find any songs about Corkhill Drive or Tilba Tilba, and this isn't really about the New South Wales in Australia either... but it's a cracking tune anyway.


  1. Jimmy Corkhill - Crikey that takes me back.

    Hope you eventually work out where he discovered that impressive drive, but whatever, it will be a lovely place to visit (albeit very far away).
