One thing about Cleckheaton, and more especially Brighouse, is that they don't cop for anywhere near as much snow as the high ground of their surrounding areas.

the inside of a 3star halex table tennis ball smells much like you'd expect it to.

Best places for avoiding snow in West Yorkshire is Cas/Ponte - because of the surplus heat generated by Ferrybridge Power Station - i worked in Cas for ten years and don't remember seeing any real snow. Morley on the other hand (which includes Tingley) is where the snow line starts!

Cleckheaton is a great little town, has good schools a large supermarket and rural aspects. The only drawback is that it's not on a railway line, but that's not a bother for you. Car-wise, it's the best commuter town in the county. Brighouse is good, and on the railway, but is much more expensive.

You'll get a 4 bedroomed detached house for £230k in Cleckheaton.

Oh Lordy, Yorkies must have some really low standards if you are recommending Cleckheaton and Brighouse. :lol:

Not at 8:30 AM on the way to work you cannot. 

 

You would be first queuing at Horbury Bridge. Pretty clear up towards Thornhill, Down towards Thornhill Lees Get stuck in traffic from the two schools either side of the Mini roundabouts with the parents dropping their children off not understanding things like road markings, space or rules of the road and living within half a mile of the school.Then through the mini roundabouts, left on Thornhill road Que at the lights by the Shepards Boy pub. Then straight into a que to turn right into Temple Road. Get stuck in traffic from the two schools up/near Temple Road. Pretty clear Through Dewsbury Moor. Then as you get within sight of Heckmondwike realise your in own long traffic jam towards the lights in Heck center. 

Decide where you need to be in Heck to work, look at watch and see it had taken you more than 15 mins even though you could do it in 15mins at a push at quiet times of day.

Doesn't matter where you live, if you set off to work at the wrong time you will end up in traffic, I often set off a couple of hours earlier than I should to avoid this problem.

I agree, take my nightshift working, my journey home at 8am takes twice as long as my journey into work at 10PM.

The way home might be though...

 

I'd also consider which councils are decent, or least worse.

If you've got children, or are about to start a family, schools are obviously a factor. Certain catchment-areas in Dewsbury and Batley will  (like Bradford) have entry-age primary school classes where a lot of the kids won't speak English.

Outstanding.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

Yep, schools a major factor. Got a few places in mind now thanks.

 

Ossett and Gomersal look the leading ones so far. Tingley sounds like a no no. Anyone got any views on Birstall?

Gomersal is perhaps a better bet than Ossett and definitely a better bet than Birstall.

 

I think you can't go far wrong in the Gomersal, Cleckheaton and East Bierley triangle.

 

A friend of mine has this pub in East Bierley.

Birstall is always heaving come evening rush hour.

 

A lot of these places are quite small, narrow and winding. I'd keep winter snow in mind.

Traffic round Birstall is quite heavy during peak periods but it always flows very well and quite quickly on the A62, A650, A651, A562, A653

 

Only time things snarl up is when we have a major incident on the M62 like last Friday afternoon/evening

 

There are however dozens of rat runs known to the locals who dont have any bother getting from A to B

Main things of concern are nice area as in not full of chavs. Quality of town centre. Ease of public transport to leeds and wakey

Gary lives in Birstall and, on his nameplate, has a picture of a Bull Terrier!!

 

Not sure about his tattoos, piercings, gold teeth, sovereign rings, preferred tracksuit-manufacturer and favourite kebab shop.

B)  :biggrin:  ;)

 

 

Right now, he's probably thinking of the different choices he has in deciding how to kill me.
