    Wakefield station is on the line to London/Leeds, some decent areas on the outskirts like Newmillerdam and Durkar. Don't head east towards 'ull! From memory Hemsworth is also pretty decent. What's your wife's ideal commute time from Ponty?
    Ideally within 30 minutes door to door, give or take a few minutes. She works 4 days per week, so there is flexibility.

    think we need to have a good look round the area and find somewhere. She's going to rent somewhere to start off with anyway.

    Ponty and Cas are shiitholes, I live East of Wakey now when in UK, it's not too bad, but I am from Bolton and have low standards which says a lot about Ponty and Cas....

    Where the F is not too bad between Wakey and Ponte? Sharlston? Streethouse? Normanton?

    Sandal seemed nice when I was there visiting friends.

    What's South Elmsall like? I knew someone from there years ago.

    Sandal is SW of Wakey, and is nice and expensive relatively, don't go to far that way though or you're in Barnsley!!!

    South Elmsall like all old pit villages is dire as are Kinsley, Fitzwilliam, Upton, South Kirby, Minsthorpe. My mum was a health visitor round there

    Good call, forgot about there. Yeah not too bad at all considering the nearby alternatives.
