what a fantastic little place to visit, tucked away so many people miss out. Full of small units the include everything from The Big Comfy Bookshop to Sergeant Bilko Museum. It is full of friendly vendors and hidden treasures. Well worth a visit.

There are limited parking spaces on site but there is a very large free car park not far from FarGo. If you access their Facebook page or website address it does give further information on there.
