    Some great ideas there, maybe CCC would be interested too?
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    I doubt sometimes whether a quiet and unagitated life would have suited me - yet I sometimes long for it.

    It's a horrible thought, isn't it?

    Yes it is Lex.

    It smacks of desperation to plan such tacky and cheap attractions. Plus tourists spend money to visit Stratford hoping to see a quaint English , part Elizabethan preserved kind of town, especially Americans who love English Heritage.
    We don't want it turned Into ludicrous tacky funfair clogging up the streets. I'm sure vistors see enough of that in their own towns, they come here to see something a bit different.
    Though Stratford has already lost its beauty and charm, with the Bancroft Gardens ripped up and mostly replaced with concrete.
