Why not make a weekend of….Crewe?

Use the Oxford United Fixture list as a touring itinerary of our amazing country and..

Maybe this is why?:

Things to do and see – Highlights are listed below:

Railway Age – An insight into Crewe’s locomotive industrial past

Stapelely Water Gardens – See exotic plants and animals and a really big garden centre

Beeston Castle – Only 10 miles away, it offers one of the most spectacular castle views in England

Surrounding Area – There are nice walks in the area. The towns of Congleton and Nantwich are worth a visit.

A much more comprehensive list of attractions can be found here, including links to some of the places above:

History and stuff:

Alexander the Great, the famous Macedonian King founded the town of Crewe on his “Conquest of Cheshire tour 318BC”. Immediately recognising the potential of the town he decreed that trains should be invented and so it came to be that Crewe became the heart of the railroad revolution.

Soot from steam locomotives became such a problem locally that it became impossible to maintain long flowing locks. Locals therefore took the drastic step of cutting off their hair, inspiring the now wide-spread “Crewe Cut”.

I won’t SEE U’s THERE because I can’t make this one 😦
