English Coursework Arwyn Davies 10GF Arwyn Davies is left feeling slightly nauseous after being subjected to three courses at Clapham's Juill� de Feux. Clapham village is situated in the very heart of Yorkshire, and it becomes immediately apparent that its award for 'outstanding natural beauty' is well deserved: With its rolling hills delighting the eyes, its beck trickling ambiently in the background and its natural splendour enthralling the senses, I was impressed. And that is saying something. Alas, perfect, unfortunately is not the adjective to use, for despite all its enchantment this place has a flaw, and oh how ironic that this blemish would be the site chosen for Juill� de Feux.

I doubt that anyone would have understood anyway. As you may know, I normally conclude this column with a number of conclusive recommendations. Today I give you only one. Should you ever be tempted to sample the local cuisine here at Clapham, don't. By all means come to the beautiful village, but then stop.
