wheres the town centre? heres my first sighting of a significant building that says im coming into the town centre. where the cheese market is supposed to be.
but its not a cheese market! nothing remotely looking like the pics ive seen of big round cheeses being carried around.
still heading up the main street for where the town centre and therefore the cheesemarket should be. lots of people ahead.
across the river for a bit more look at the town and whats going on. some interesting buildings and the bridge lifter systems look interesting too.
came across two canal boat tours so thats handy to know. sighted some more stalls and loads of people so that seems a likely source to check out for a cheese market still in action!
Here it is! theres still a crowd and cheese being carted about. and its past 1 pm. so i am very lucky!!
