A guide to Market Harborough

People often ask me what my home town is like. This website will tell you all you need to know:
Market Harborough is located in a rural job of south Leicestershire, upon the River Welland. It is very completion to the Northamptonshire border, and is something like 15 miles (24 km) south of Leicester and 10 miles north of Kettering. The urban is near the A14 core thoroughfare and Market Harborough railway position is served by the Midland Main Line railway. There is also a field of the Grand Union Canal which terminates on the north section of the town. Nearby to the urban are the illustrious Foxton Locks.
Then there's my old school:
One of the town’s most notable skin texture is an odd grammar instruct dating from 1614 located in the urban centre which stands on stiff stilts. The bottom was once used as a butter market. Market Harborough Grammar School was founded in 1607 by Robert Smyth, a lowly native of the urban who became Comptroller of the City of London’s Chamber and appendage of the Merchant Taylors’ Company. The instruct has since motivated sites and now the Robert Smyth School catering for 13-18 year-olds. The instruct badge is the arms of the City of London
And the town museum:
Situated in job of what was once the old Symington’s Corset Factory, the Museum shares the edifice with the Council offices and the Library. Since gap in 1983 the Museum has lasting to accumulate and flaunt bits and pieces of native pastime plus native Roman archaeological finds. It is sweeping to the pubic most years of the time and is without charge to visit.

The link didn't work for me, but this sounds like it was written in another language then computer-translated without human editorial involvement. Where is it from?
