I personally think this an average high street, there's a Wilkinsons and the normal small high street shops and several charity shops. Cafes are not the best and the only pub is grubby. Some of the shops up the top of town are half tidy...More

A well known local shopping area, very handy for most needs. Parking usually a problem but the nearby side streets can be used also.

Very local to us and just the place for most items needed. Small shops with a good range of products, parking could be improved but most of the time it is possible.
