    I live in Ludgershall, Bucks. It is by far the most unfriendly place I have live in all the places I have been in my life. If you are not over 70 and ‘in’ with the local ancients then you are in for pure bullying by them. They will enforce any rule they want and have the local parish shower you with threats if they are not happy with your ‘performance’ here. Being retired they know their stuff. So, if you dream of peace, stay away. This place is too small and full of too much evil than you can imagine. Sorry but be warned before stepping into this incestuous place, they will get you!
