Creeping into Huddersfield
Vibrant. I think that's the word a tourist officer would use to describe Huddersfield. In an afternoon stroll we took in its magnificent wide streets of Georgian buildings – and a stupendous Palladian railway station that looks more like the British Museum -- a big African wedding, vivid with colourful costumes, the Open Air Market whose stalls selling everything from knock-off dvds to rusty tools to random piles of old shoes could have been in any third world country, and a flashy new shopping mall.
Quite a place but I don't think I'd like to wander round it at night.
