Small world for tourists

Just talking to Orange Customer Support about a simple matter and post-detail giving I received the unusual response of:
"Oh Stourport. I used to go on the little boats with my father"
Turns out his family used to visit when he was young and has often thought of bringing his family down during the summer; so we spent a few minutes discussing the attractions on the riverside etc.

Feels weird to consider someone coming down from Newcastle as a tourist just to visit our town; which in itself is odd given the Brummie Invasion we all have to put up with :-P
