    Why is it that are the majority of sellers along the A6 are shown as men? In those towns on Thursdays, it is usual in New Mills,Disley, Chapel en-le Frith, Whaley Bridge that the Big Issue sellers are dominated women. In Disley the woman travel to Disley by train in the morning. Their pitch is outside of the Co-op. They leave by train late afternoon. The women sellers who sell in New Mills, Whaley Bridge and Buxton work similarly - Summer and Winter! Buxton
