    Never? Really? They are so ubiquitous and I appreciate fairly easy to avoid if inclined. I am impressed.

    Never.
    McDonalds, like incest and Morris Dancing, is something I'm uninclined to try, not even once.

    I must admit I'm surprised about the incest bit.

    I've not been there but Hydes's Mandarina Bar is good for starting a Macclesfield pub crawl with a pint and a breakfast.

    Correct, they were asking people at the Hough one about whether they’d use it last year.

    They could however replace the now closing Pizza Hut with a McDonald’s

    I suspect they would want a drive through McDonald's if they put one on the Hough and I'm not sure there's the space on the footprint of that pizza hut.

    In that case you are disqualified from ever living in Norfolk.

    They could but they won't.... If Ronald wanted a McD in that area they would have built it 5 years ago.

    Looks like two new tenants opposite the coop and sports direct.

    Works started in both the old Wimpy / Bap Shop, and the old Bakes and Shakes.

    The DIY / bag store that moved from the market to that row of shops though have jointly agreed to just retire though, so they're having a closing down sale .

    New cafe opening on Beaconside Business Park, between Queens Chippy and NVS: “Breakfast Bar”

    Frustratingly I have line of sight to it from work but the cop shop is in the way, so no shortcut allowed... don’t think there’s any plan to build a link road between the Tech Park and Beacon Business Park is there?

    Yes, I suppose you could. No idea what you’d do at the other end though, do those scooters have a thing to prevent theft when they’re still rented?

    So, you know where that fabulous Bed shop is, on the Hough.... Benson for Beds?

    Well, a little carer told me, that opening next door (in the old Maplins store) is..... 'Easy Bathrooms' , open to both the public & trade, selling bathrooms & tiles....

    ... Set to open in about 5 weeks.
