Outside my Front Door – Nantwich
March 30, 2010 by Livi
This week’s Gallery prompt from Tara at Sticky Fingers was “outside my front door” so without further ado, welcome to Heaven’s Waiting Room:
It took me a grand total of 40 mintues to walk into, around the whole town, and back home again! That gives you an idea on size!
In the 16th century there was a Great Fire in my town which almost totally destroyed it. However Queen Elizabeth I donated £2000 and organised a countrywide appeal which raised £30,000 to rebuild.
We host an international cheese show, Folk festival, Food festival and Jazz and Blues festival every year, all of which draw a fair few tourists.
There is a rumour about our town having the most pubs per square mile, however it appears to be just a rumour, but when many of the alley ways are cobbled it’s a pain rumour or not!
Our local church has an octagonal tower.
We only have one night club, most locals claim to hate it, I love it and I’m not ashamed!
Last year (2009) the winner of Big Brother came from our fair town!
