Interesting piece on the Times website this weekend. Read it here before the paywall ensures we all stop reading the travel section for good.
Well, I say interesting. The story, written by Northwest tourism stalwart, Stuart Maconie, is more of a puff for his new book Adventures on the High Teas: In Search of Middle England.
But the comments at the end of the piece make for some fascinating reading and an insight into an age-old debate.
So, to keep the discussion going, it’s time for Hit the North’s first poll. Your votes please.
