Keep Calm and Carry On – The Story
That looks a great shop. I feel the need to sink into a big leather armchair with a cup of tea and a dusty tome now.
It is AndyP and I’m sure I read the guy who found it has some annoyances abut that. Although, the woman who owned every last original poster was on Antiques Roadshow a wee while back and it seems that they have a fair little nest-egg on their hands…pros and cons, right!Posted 5 years ago
It’s a great shop Andy, I don’t use anyway near as much as I should but I’m not a great book reader. The wife goes every Friday with her friend for soup and coffee in the tearoom says it’s excellent and cheap.
Yeah they probably have but it’ll not bother them, they bought the place and setup the business as the guy is obsessed with trains and old books. It’s lovely place to have a mooch around.Posted 5 years agomeehajaMember
I’ve been there. Too many books, couldn’t really find anything I wanted. The castle was really expensive and the “toxic garden” was a bit of a let down and the guides knowledge was sketchy at best. Had some nice food in the square though and on the whole really enjoyed our holiday up there.

Hundreds of them isn’t there.
Castle is pretty expensive but worth a visit, I’ve never been in the poison garden. I usually get an annual pass for the gardens as it’s great place to take the kids. But now there both at school I’ve not bothered for the last year or so. The poison gardens I hear mix reviews about it most say it’s worth going but nothing special. The town itself is slowly redeveloping, it has a long way to go but certainly improving from what it was. Overall it’s a nice town, not my home town but lived here now for 17 years.Posted 5 years agoaracerSubscriber
Have to admit I hadn’t even realised this was such a modern phenomenon – strange how these memes creep up on you. Have done a bit of reading around on the trademark thing – that Mark Coop bloke is a bit of a **** isn’t he?Posted 5 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
Reminds me of an incident in my car,
Mum :whats this, why have you got packets of rolling tobaco and papers in the seats?
Me (driving): ohh, it must be *insert fellow STW’ers name who I’d given a lit to the weekend before*
GF: haha, it’s *editied to protect the guilty*
Me: naaa it’ll just be tobaco, I’l give it him back next week (quickly pocketing the offeding ‘rolling tobaco’ and changeing the conversation quickly)Posted 5 years ago
