Comments[edit]

Why did someone delete mine and my very very naughty friend's amazing wikipediac work of venerable art? I mean, if you're going to delete someone else's hard work, you should at least put an article to replace it. I demand an apology and a full restoration. Or maybe just a doughnut.

Original (and most awesome) Article[edit]

Understand Most Northamptonians are wonderful culturally diverse people. However there are some chavvy personalities dirtying the otherwise clean facade of Northampton's general social welbeing.

Get in Northampton has a bus station, which smells really bad and it was stated on a show about England's worst buildings, and frankly it deserves to be there. It also has a train station, which isnt great but it's okay.

By plane If you wish to hijack a plane this a viable method of gaining access to Northampton but in my friend's experience, not worth the effort. Especially since plane meals are awful.

By train I guess. The train station is conveniently situated about 2 miles away from anything remotely interesting.

By car There are regular car journeys into Northampton. Hijack one, as my very very naughty friend says this is a more viable hijacking method.

By bus I've already mentioned that. Unless you want to be rattled to death and be given evil stares by old people I do not recommend this travel option.

By boat You CAN drag a boat along dry ground. It'll certainly burn off that millies cookie you bought in the Grovesnor Center

Get around Uhh, walk?

See Interesting nightlife, IE Prostitues. However if you prefer doing tourist stuff in the day you can take advantage of the vast amount of chavs and goths wandering around.

Do Nothing. At least nothing worth dragging a boat along dry ground for.

Learn The best way not to get mugged.

Work Why would you want to work there? Aren't you supposed to be on holiday? And if that's the case WHY ARE YOU IN NORTHAMPTON?

Buy A cheap cat glove from a 99p store!! Complete with bells.

Budget Highly over processed over stringified crap.

Mid-range Highly over processed over stringified crap. Or a millies cookie

Stay safe Don't! You must fund the muggers!

Cope Don't go.

Get out THERES NO ESCAPE!

Sedgebrook Hall[edit]

[1], I noticed the Principal Hayley hotel Sedgebrook Hall in the village of Chapel Brampton is not listed, can we have it listed? Send me a message if you require any details not public on the website VerbInteractive (talk) 20:51, 15 December 2014 (UTC)

To save time here is the posting with only factual info (I can't post the listing as I represent the company)

Done. Ikan Kekek (talk) 17:42, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
Suggested description: A hotel and event venue located in the village of Chapel Brampton in the Northampton countryside offering 102 bedrooms and 23 event suites. VerbInteractive (talk) 20:29, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

"Learn" and "Work" from article[edit]

Neither of these sections seems useful to travellers, but I move these listings here, in case you can glean anything of any relevance to people in Northampton on ~2-week visits:

Learn[edit]

The University of Northampton [2] offers tertiary level courses in a range of subjects.

For vocational courses and A level courses, Northampton College [3] has a wide range of courses on offer.

For apprenticeships, workplace learning and training courses, take a look at Options 2. [4]

Work[edit]

Northampton Job Centre [5] is on Frances Street and has listings for casual and permanent positions as well as job advice. It is essential for migrants to the area to visit the job centre to secure National Insurance Cards.

Adecco [6] and the usual temporary work firms also operate in Northampton.

Nah. This seems to be a case of wrong template to start with. The big city template has been used, although this is not a city at all, according to the article itself. I'll remove stay safe and subdivisions in eat and get in as well, to get rid of unnecessary headers and obvious advise. JuliasTravels (talk) 16:03, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
