It's in Romford. Apart from a trip to Southend last year, I don't know Essex at all. That'll be changing now.
We went for lunch at The Orange Tree in Havering-atte-Bower. I'd recommend it.
Afterwards a trip to B&Q to buy paint and paint stripper and cleaning materials. The woman who sold Mike and Su the house from put her name to a document saying everything was in working order and they arrived to find half the lights were fused and the shower and downstairs toilet were broken and...argh!
See the trees beyond the house? That's where the local park is. They have an uninterrupted view into it from their front windows.
