I popped into Huddersfield today. I still get a shock when it costs me £4.70 to catch the bus somewhere and back. I remember riding for pennies when I was a lass....ok so that's going back a bit.
The thing I love about living in my Northern town is how beautiful the buildings are. I live nearest to Bradford (less said the better) but the buildings are gorgeous. In Huddersfield today, I took the time to look at some of the buildings - not at the shop level but higher. Could you even imagine building something like this these days???
