  • It's pronounced Crook urn by the locals. The concierge probably sounds like one of the Wurzels and they all go out and drink rough cider on a Friday. Good news is the whole area is a hot bed for engineers because the worlds best helicopters (with composite blades) are built just down the road in Yeovil.

  • You completely missed the US market Atom! The Atom was manufactured just down the road from where I live in Oregon for the US market, by the company Brammo, for a short time. Then Brammo started making electric motorcycles and batteries then sold to Cummins. I took a tour of their production, it was pretty kewl seeing the building of the Atoms though, in left hand drive!
