    Yup. Certainly is. And so is the sofa if you have one in this fine county.

    I probably don't post here enough to have influence on these matters but Shrewsbury is a good call. Potential for additional trips to Caersws, Welshpool and Newtown on adjacent days

    All input is worthy.

    Caersws is a brave call - only one of the pubs was open the day I stopped there!

    Great chippy and still the smallest town to have played competitive football in Europe, I think..

    I think Shrewsbury has been mentioned before and I think it has enough to make it a viable option. Iy also gas a Premier Inn near the Rail Station and overlooking the Bus Station. There are other good options for the adjacent days, Ludlow, Ruabon, Nantwich or on a Saturday the Salopian Brewery Tap.

    I don't think it has enough options. I went there to visit the Spoons and also visited the original home of Wye Valley Brewery and a micropub. I didn't feel I was missing out on much. Midlands or South? It's West but as there are just three categories I'd place it in the midlands. It's roughly on the same level as Worcester and Banbury which are surely Midland towns.

    It gets Anglia television but I've always thought of it as South due to the train links to London and the fact that the Essex and Herts borders are not very far away,

    Stamford
    Bridgnorth
    Northampton
    Kettering
    Grantham

    Only Ludlow and Kenilworth do not have JDWs but I've been to Ludlow twice. I couldn't even tell you exactly where Kenilworth is!
