    I'm guessing you are somewhere near Egremont then?

      Yes, just a couple of miles west of Egremont.

        Lovely area - I used to work around there occasionally, many moons ago.

          Unfortunately its not the same anymore. Me and the Mrs were in Whitehaven today and both commented how run down the area was. Only 2 stalls at the market with many shops up for let and have been for years, quite depressing really. I remember in my youth we had an abundance of night clubs, all gone.

          We have commercial properties in Egremont, three shops and an Indian restaurant, all leased out. We are lucky that they are all occupied, but we have been fair on the rent, it does not help anyone when shop units are empty.

          That is really sad to hear, but sadly I fear it is replicated across the country. We can but hope for a bounce back.
