Feels pretty good, huh? To live in a place which is in the Top 10 Best Places to Live, as determined by the Sunday Times, no less?
There it is, in black, blue and white. Wanstead, number 10. In the company of Stockbridge (‘foodie’), Kentish Town (‘fashionable’), Durham (‘perfect’) and Bath (‘bonnets’). Yes! Little Wanstead in such illustrious company.
There are a few caveats though. This Top 10 is labelled “Best of the Rest”, meaning it comes after the paper has identified the Top 10 in lots of other categories, like Best for Families, Best for Outdoors, Best for Millionaires, Best for Schools etc. So that clouds it a little bit. But let’s put that to one side – and examine what actually the authors (hello, @TheSTHome) actually liked.
Well the top bit is just about spot on, no? Middle England… village green… tennis courts… Chichi deli… good State schools… The property prices a touch out of date, maybe, maybe by 10 years or so.
BUT WTF DOES CHAS N DAVE HAVE TO DO WITH IT??
