    I've been accepted into Josephine Butler College for next year but I'm a bit worried about the location as it seems quite a way from the town centre and shops, supermarkets, bars etc. Is there anyone living there/has lived there that could offer some reassurance or advice on this?


    I am at Butler and I love it. I was concerned about the location too initially, I brought my bike up because I thought it would be a long way to walk all the time. But honestly it's the best - I wouldn't swap the location for a closer college to town centre that didn't have en-suites. With shopping etc I am in town for lectures every day so I just grab bits and bobs whenever I pass Tesco so never have to bring more than a rucksack full back up the hill.

    I walk from Butler to Hild Bede every day (google map it) and trust me you just get used to the mileage, if anything it'll just get you fit!
Which accompaniment is best?
