Alderley Edge Cheshire:
Went for a walk here today with my dear Mother who likes it here.Its full of legends and folklore and i know it and i remember the book and kids TV programme [IIRC] that i have vague memories of watching called The Wierdstone Of Brisingamen.It is a series of sandstone outcrops and a highpoint that stands alone amongst the flat plains of Cheshire.Alderley Edge itself as in the small town is by far and away the most expensive location in Cheshire but i also think that it is the most overrated.Its nothing that special as the high st is nothing to write home about but it is just a name to drop and is home to 1st division footballers like an enclave.
I could spend all day there but it was beautiful today as we had a sprinkling of snow.
You pay up to 3 million for a detached house yet you get a Somerfield as the local supermarket.
Somerfield is one of THE worst supermarkets but over in Knutsford we have Booths [sort of the same as Waitrose.Just as good] instead so its Knutsford - 1 Alderley Edge - 0.
