anyone live in Chester-Le-Street

Recommended Posts

me and the other half need someone to live desperately. Seen a few places to rent in Chester-Le-Street and it seems ok for me to get to work and for her to find work in Durham/Newcastle/gateshead and it's still only 45 minutes away from my family

 

just wondering if we have any locals from there on here, anything I should know about, etc?

 

failing that is bobbyshinton's spare room still available? :D

J69 is from CLS, don't know if that helps make your mind up. :D

 

I lived there for a year about 10 years ago. I didn't really like it tbh - a bit insular and too many mackems. Transport links are good though.

Got family next door in Houghton. Chester has a nice 'town' centre, but its chav central. Mackem chav central in point of fact. But aye, its convenient for toon/Gateshead and the sooth all at the same time. As good a bet as any place for a move.

Transport links are good, Renton? My immediate thought was bus-tastic to get there from town, plus taxis from town would cost a mint. Too far out for my liking if you have any links with Newcastle.

quick scan of buses, about 40 minute journey in to newcastle, first bus at 4.32am (who the hell travels that early) from 6.30 on wards it's every 5 minutes, so yeah bus-tastic

It's more or less equidistant from Newcastle, Durham, Consett and *cough* that other place. Plus there's the train and Express buses. One problem is though it is just outside T&W so bus passes aren't valid iirc.

Better now than it has been in decades.

 

-Hourly Trains North and South to all Major Cities

-Ten mins from Newcastle

-Five mins from Durham

-Few decent restaurants now

-3 Nightclubs and about 20 pubs

-Big Tescos just opened

-Cricket Ground brings in a lot of revenue - Elton John and UB40!!!!!

-House prices are likely to rise with it being an expanding town.

 

You could do a lot worse tbh. In my whole life I cant say ive ever been threatened, mugged, shouted at etc. on the streets. Working in Darlington however it happened on a weekly basis!
