Cambridge. That's all I know. Don't go an visit him unless he invites you first though. Syd is a private man.

Some history

A funny fact
In 1984, David Gilmour (Barrett's replacement in Pink Floyd) was promoting a solo album. He had heard I Know Where Syd Barrett Lives and liked the track enough to invite the Television Personalities on tour with him. It was a short-lived relationship though. During a gig in London, Dan Treacy (TVP's lead singer) read out Barrett's actual home address on stage. This was not a popular move with Gilmour, who had them dropped from the rest of the tour.
