Cornwall has a vibrant tourism industry (and rightly so) ... but Mansfield (as with places like Scunthorpe, Doncaster & Sheffield for example) will never have the Cornish attraction. We need to be realistic. Either build the hotel - or my preferred option - rebuild the Bishop St. stand. Which was the preferred option of all Stags fans on several forums (and rightly so). It's time to do the Bishop!
Sheffield had 17M tourists last year compared to Cornwall which had 5.5M. It proves places around us do have attraction. Cornwall isn’t even English, right or so the Cornish claim.
