Overall Guide : A VERY NICE SHOPPING CENTRE WITH MANY SUPERMARKETS, AND MORRISONS OPENING SOON. The Bowls hall at the Stadium is good, but could do with refurbishment. Pleasant walks along Avon Llewyd river. The boating lake is worth visiting.
Not to be missed Boating lake , Sports Stadium , Shopping Centre
