I think it has good potential, I really miss the ramshackle Scalford, it was of it’s time and a thing, but stuff changes.

Worth the trip to see the toilets, best bogs in the uk for my money in the north staffs hotel

It’s an inspired choice for a show though, 30 yards from the train station, 10 mins from the m6, food and beer plentiful and cheap, accommodation also cheap

I have promised the wife that I will bugger off for a weekend so that she can have some “her time” / get blind drunk / have steamy assignation with Ramon the love rat.

I had mooted the weekend of the 1st / 2nd October and was wondering about maybe going to Malvern (because that’s where I’m from). Where the feck is Stoke?

It’s no where near the north. It’s midlands at best. And more Welsh than north.

It’s halfway between Birmingham and Manchester = Norf :slightly_smiling_face:

I used to live there 20+ yrs ago, less than half a mile from the station.

I do not miss the place.

Can you still buy a house there for a tenner?

£12 these days

Just had a look, a house on the road i lived on sold for £41k in 2020. Red brick, turn of the century mid terrace.

I have driven through Stoke a few times on the way over to visit Borats - nothing I saw suggested anything other than doors-locked-and-keep-moving…

That said, iirc Bourney lives there, and he’s sound-as, so perhaps it’s not all bad…
