      • From my recent trip to Chesterfield

        In the British Heart Foundation, over two-thirds of a quite good Billy Connolly album.



        Meanwhile in Oxfam, and to be fair it does have the word 'world' in the album title.



        Save the Children's not very extensive selection.

        • And in the Samaritans, it's cassettes only. And rather bad ones at that.



          The Ashgate Hospice shop goes all ethnic.



          A vinyl waste land it may be, but Chesterfield does have dining options that lesser towns can only dream of. A foot long hot dog with tea for only £2-80. Get in!

          • The Ashgate Hospice shop isn't just ethnic, it's multicultural - Black Music next to White Dwarf.

            Fusion.

              Pitiful. I know where you can buy a metre-long sausage for €6.
              that's not only well over three times longer than those footling dogs, but you also get more pork slurry for your money.
              You can buy it chopped up or eat it like a sword swallower.

                  The feet to metre and pound to euro sums are a bit too complicated from but I think you win. Just. But how many sticky plasters can you buy in Euroland eh? In Chesterfield you can buy 60 plasters ('for disasters') for only £1 while being serenaded by a student in earmuffs playing Elbow covers.



                  Plus there is the largest porn shop masquerading as a 'party supplies' shop I have ever seen. Take that Hamburg:



                  Sadly I left the Michael Bentine album as I already had it. It was in the Oxfam if you're planning on your own trip:



                  If it's gone, the British Heart Foundation shop did have this remarkable piece of Clarice Cliff for sale:

                  • Chesterfield wins hands down on sticking plasters and smut shacks, I admit.

                    Although I bet none of those plasters come in a choice of Real Madrid or Barcelona colours like the ones here. I want Getafe plasters*

                    Eine, I will have to wait until my kids next rugby match to snap myself noshing a giant sausage. the sausage bar is where the Little Volcanos XV go to carouse after a hearty knockabout

                    * Here is my favourite Spanish teams ad campaign from last year - Hot Getafe Zombies, in which the club sponsor a porno-horror movie in order to encourage sperm donations which will then fill the world with little Getafe fans

                      • At one point in my life I ending up going to Chesterfield quite a lot
                        Apart from the amazingly twisted church spire in the centre of town the place sums up everything I displike about British urban living.
                        Having said that I did find a copy of KPM Solid Gold in one of the charity shops - which was nice

                          It never struck me as urban living at all when I used to visit. It's in Derbyshire, for goodness sake.
                          Dead Mans Shoes reminded me of Chesterfield

                            Its the largest town in Derbyshire - that's urban enough for me
                            Just because its surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in England that doesn't stop it from being a town
                            Anyway, apologies to anyone on the board who is from or currently lives in Chesterfield.
