It’s 1.1 miles north to south. It’s 0.9 miles west to east. A small and dense market town of just under 7,000 people. There are a few small villages but also several large towns all around it, many a short hop away on the mainline railway, so its wider catchment population is small. There is a big Tescos and a little Co-op in the centre. All the pubs, restaurants and take-aways that a market town needs. Even a market.
