    There is a website, called www.upmystreet.co.uk i think it is, or something like that. All you do is put your new postcode in, and it'll tell you all the information you'll ever need. Nearest school, their ranking, local council and their ranking, crime figures, etc etc

    http://www.nethouseprices.com may be of use - links to the land registry and gives the price people have actually paid for houses (though wouldnt include any fiddling the figures on buying 'fittings' etc)

    Upmystreet is very good too but mjn got that one in before me

    Should be ok, just stay away from the old victorian terrace houses as they aren't worth it (in my opinion obviously). East Hunsbury is good because it doesn't feel like you are in a big town, there are quite a few parks and there is a big supermarket (Tesco) within driving distance.

    It is also a stone's throw away from the Motorway and also the road (not sure of the name) that takes you to Billing Aquadrome in about 5 minutes. This is a really good place to go on a weekend for Sunday Lunch and a stroll along the Lake/Canal if you are that way inclined. If you llike motorsport you have Silverstone, Santa Pod, that new Oval track and also the International Raceway if you like banger racing and Stock Cars etc.
