Sinking land...

Due to the town's small size and population the attraction of high street stores is limited, meaning many of the residents are forced to shop in neighbouring towns like Newtown and Shrewsbury.

Hi LG,

By coincidence - or not - all of our local barbers are masons! With, of course, chequer-board floors. They love a good bit of gossip, which then get fed back to the brethren et al. so one can tell them what one wants them to hear!

Nice post!
