Should you wish to get the old athlete's foot on the go, there's many an opportunity to get out there and jiggle about in the name of exercise. For a town where so many folks wear tracksuits willy-nilly, even just for standing outside of pubs, you might rightly expect such an embarrassment of leisure facilities. From tossing the pigskin to a quiet spot to eat your sarnies, Whitley does not disappoint.
