 I used to dread visiting my grand-parents who lived there, it was a depressing place due to bad weather and high unemployment (local coal mines closing in Thatcher era). But if this existed then, I would have moved in!

Hats off to the founders, it must have been a difficult project to get off the ground, and the trails now look great. Also congrats on reinvigorating the area bringing in tourists etc.
