Essential roadwords mean that Montpellier Parade will be closed to traffic for the next week - making this perfect corner of England even more peaceful than usual!
So what could be better than to join the locals and enjoy a traffic free few days to visit the cafes, bars and restaurants with their alfresco terraces in historic Montpellier?
Or head to newcomer Harry Cook's Freehouse. Their large terrace is ideal for people watching with a pint or two of real ale (or something stronger). They have an excellent lunch menu with great value special offers too.
A little further down towards the Queens Hotel, John Gordons also has some outdoor tables - a delightful spot in fair weather to sample one of the UK's largest collections of Scotch whisky.
