the Pod locality was a boon and a 2 bed house with garage for 500 a month is way cheaper than what I pay now!
Knew someone at Uni who thought Yoghurt had more culture than northampton ... but then again he liked london (which i don't) and he was a c**t so maybe I shouldn't have paid attention .... lucky i don't hold grudges isn't it?
Some of the villages are nice, I grew up in Northamptonshire.... Steer clear of Wellingborough and Kettering and definitely Corby, some parts of Northampton are OK... Rushden is chav central, but its splitting distance from the pod... I lived in Raunds which was OK too..... Thrapston used to be OK, so are most of the villages around there.... Good luck....
The fact I moved to Hertfordshire has no basis on my above comments
I've just spent a lot of money buying a house there so it better be good!!
Looking forward to seeing a few of the N'ton lot some of whom I've met some I haven't. My place is in Duston...3 car drive plus garage sealed the deal for me, my better half also informs me its got 3 big bedrooms and is kitted out nice but to be honest it was all a bit of a haze after seeing the garage
Moving in in 2 months and will have a party for the local dubbers to get to know you all...oh yeah I forgot to say, my next door neighbour has a 70 bug stripped down on his drive so it looks like i've got a friend!!
we are in Rushden, iam from Raunds ,lived here all my life, rushden is chav central teen mums galore , but it aint that bad seen worse, stay clear from certain parts of northampton and wellinboro, but pods 2 fields away from my workshop so who givs a fook about chavs.
