Had heard of this urban village, but now having visited will go back a few times as there is a lot to do and a variety of events. Reminiscent of a small hippy commune in some ways!

Visited on Sunday , because almost everywhere seemed to be closed on Mondays. An interesting and eclectic mix of vinyl shops, book shops, places to eat and much more . Well worth a detour from the town centre.

There are limited parking spaces on site but there is a very large free car park not far from FarGo. If you access their Facebook page or website address it does give further information on there.
