It’s about a surprisingly big red car, what more d’ya want
A town has/had a market?
I wonder how it works for new towns then - I don’t know if mine would ever have had a market
New towns are a bit different, I suppose. It’ll probably be something to do with having its own council or borough or whatever.
Telford is a bit odd, because it basically combined towns that already existed into a New Town (a bit like Stoke on Trent and its six towns).
Not a chance anyone has not been here.
just a bus terminal with a university
I’ve been to Reading (went to an open day at the uni there). Oh and to Reading Festival
DiSers, have you been to Reading?
that’s the one where they don’t throw piss in bottles at the bands?
Used to. They stopped after I told them to stop.
thanks for doing that
berkshire, wow is there a place called berk?
Yes, but only to the station and the hospital (and the latter only because I was born there)
Berk is a contraction of rhyming slang for Berkshire Hunt
Well at least it’s not a horrible slur I wasn’t aware of
Well, depends on if you like being called what rhymes with Berkshire Hunt tbh
Literally once, i saw a lad shaping up and told him not to, we echanged reasons for why we felt the way we did before i told him he’d enjoy Holy Fuck, who were playing in a tent at the time, because they had a rude word in the name. He agreed and never threw piss again in his life*.
* I can only presume this to be true, as i haven’t kept in touch.
