This entrance is from a road leading from the High Street. Another follows a path from an extensive private car park.

The central Plaza s a bustling and colourful centrepiece on a hot August weekday. Black and Decker, who have a discount  shop in the village, were doing special promotions from the tent.

The central area has both trees and flowers, and a range of attractions and service, most notably fast food outlets.

The factory chimney overlooks proceedings. Retail outlets are largely housed in single-storey shops, with some, apparently older, buildings in some areas. The shops do sometimes change vendors, and move within the village.
