I lived there for a month in January 09, and am sorry to say I was glad it wasn't any longer than that!
If I never go back again it will be too soon. I found the people to be completely obnoxious money obsessed w*****s to boot.
Shame 'cos the outdoors round that part of the world is beautiful.
I think MikeD lives there or in a small town nearby - an exception to the completely obnoxious money obsessed w*****s mentioned above.
To give credit where due however, it did turn me on to old bikes - I had to buy one cos the public transport was so shit / non existent and I didn't fancy any of the then-current new bikes.
