Chesterfield - what does the guy with the horse and cart do? I saw him last saturday when i went shopping.
I've never seen him do anything... it's only just struck me as odd now you've said that.
I believe our outdoor market is famous for some reason... although I'm not sure why. It's pretty shit really.
No he never does!
The horse always looks very subdued though. Feel a bit sorry for it, having to endure the chavs with their stinkbombs :rolleyes:
I hope it has a nice field to enjoy when it's off duty.

It was the first town in the UK with automated traffic lights.
Haha I must admit I looked twice when I first saw it! Its always good to see it when on the train cause your nearly back in Yorkshire!
Chesterfield station is quite nice - i've always used it when traveling long distance. Seeing as it's actually closer to me than Derby or Nottingham station, and only has 2 platforms so is alot easier to use.

Oh yeah... that's another thing we're famous for George Stephenson died and was burried here...
My hometown is famous for fish! tee hee!
