There's so much to see but a break by the market cross is a must. Take in the town and relax! Look up and down the streets to get the full picture of life here.

A little sanctuary admits this thriving bustling market town. This is the ideal place to have a sit down whilst discovering all the town has to offer.

Hard working locals have provided a riot of colour to feast your eyes and benches to sit and watch the world go by. Eat your food and then browse the local variety of shops

A well kept garden with benches to sit down. Tubs and floral borders are well kept and colourful. In the spring it's also a delight. Love to sit here and people watch or enjoy an ice cream.
