I used to work in Stroud (more precisely, based in Stroud, worked in Dursley, Berekeley and Wotton Under Edge).

Very picturesque for sure, but struck me as places where the locals were either extremely rich, or if not, stuck there.

I found myself whistling the Twin Peaks theme quite a lot.

Tell me - is it pronounced "Strowd" (rhymes with "loud"), or "Strewed" (rhymes with "rude")? I've heard both.

Bit of trivia regarding that; they made an episode in season 6 of the Simpsons called 'A Star is Burns' which was a quite blatent advert for Brooks 'the Critic'. So much so that Groening openly critised it and doesn't appear on the DVD commentry for that episode
