Which side of the road do you run on and why?

I was advised, years ago, to run on the right side of the road (UK) facing oncoming traffic, on the basis that drivers and riders would see you better and give you more room.

Same as @WiltshireWonder - with the further exception that if one side has a grass verge and the other an enormous stone wall (not an unusual situation in the Peak District) I go on the verge side in case of the need of an escape route.

99% of the time towards traffic as is recommended (by who I can't remember, Highway Code?) and like drhysted so I can see if I need to jump into a hedge, but also like wiltshirewonder I will change sides if the situation requires it.

Forgot to add I don’t run in the gutter either. I space myself out a bit (about near side wheel to passengers seat distance) so I’m more visible. Then tuck in as the cars get closer.
