Ohhhh, that must be why I got so many funny looks Sparkling! I must have looked like a very lost surfer, wandering around a central town location! Although the canal is only 10 mins away, so I could've been headed there
I got one in Wilkinsons for about a tenner, it's nice and sturdy and has a lovely cover. I don't have much experience of ironing boards, that was the first one I'd bought for myself, so I don't know how it compares to others, but it was reasonably priced. I don't drive and lived on the high street so just carried it home under one arm.
