Harchester is a small country town of approximately 35 thousand people. It is situated approximately 15 miles south from the major conurbation of Wickminster, which is currently applying for city status.
Wickminster has approximately 120 thousands inhabitants. This town has had a large number of major developments over the last 20 years including two retail parks, a large leisure park including a cinema and a number of major supermarkets relocating to the town’s outskirts. All these have had a major effect upon Harchester both for the retail sector and the employment of the town.
