Have you ever watched Doc Martin? You know that beautiful town where it's set on the Cornwall Coast with it's steeply winding roads down to a tiny harbour with quaint fishing boats? Well Deben Market is a bit like that... but then again it's not.
You see Deben is a place of mystery. Where you can't quite get a handle on the layout of the place and where time seems to stand still, but you're not sure in which decade?
And the locals are just as... mmm... what's the word? Transient? I mean you look at them and they seem like they belong to the place... been there for years. And then they're gone. Pfff... like smoke.
But despite this sense of shifting time, there's also something comforting about the place. Like well worn shoes or a favourite sweater. You just can't let it go... it's like it's a part of you.
