This is a question Rubbish Towns

I once went to Basildon. It was closed, I got chased by a bunch of knuckle-dragged yobs until I was lost in a maze of concrete alleyways and got food poisoning off pie. Tell us about the awful places you've visited or have your home.

Thanks to SpankyHanky for the suggestion

Dorchester, Dorset
The town where Woolworths would not die.

Also, the town frequently voted the owner of Britain's worst Christmas lights, thanks to a council too scared to spend any money on anything.

Here they are:

Beat THAT, Oxford Street.

Yep, those lights
are lame.

Those special invisible Christmas lights they'd have had to have imported especially from Japan cost an absolute fucking fortune.

That place...
What's with the grim half-ghost town on the outskirts as well? That housing estate never ever seems to be finished!

That's Poundbury...
...Prince Charles's dream town made out of Lego.

It will never be finished.

shit hole that he likes to show off. The roads are never finished the houses start at an "affordable" £240k and look like shit and there are no facilities for the thousands of extra people - they just piggy back from dorchester. Which wouldnt be too bad if they wernt going to make the whole place 1 way. If the county council were not based there I am sure it wouldnt exist

Boyfriend and I got lost in there! Nasty place.

Yeah.. crap christmas lights are annoying
Nottingham once put up all white lights which looked shit, because they didn't want to upset minority religions. I can't wait to sit down and spend some time slating my home city!

Sat in the fucking place right now.
And joy of joys, will be moving to Pound-where the fuck is everyone-bury next month.

Still, Dorchester does have a couple of nice sandwich shops.

Seven-time UK Champion Town Crier Alistair Chisholm.

he is the worlds
biggest cock who whores himself for attention at every available oppertunity. No-one likes the idea of having a crier in the town. fuck knows why our taxes pay for him but he wont seem to cunt the fuck off!

He's also...
... chairman of the Chamber of Commerce, so does at least fulfil some function.

But the naked town crier-ing? ARRRRRRGH!

I've been there a few times
It doesn't seam that bad to me.

I was born in Dorchester and moved away seven years ago. I still have a fondness for the place and visit fairly often. Unsure if it's because I absolutely love Maumbury Rings or because my Grandparents live there with my Dad living just outside in Martinstown.

And the Tesco is nicely designed. Okay, yeah you know you are clutching at straws when you praise a town's Tesco.

also the tesco
isnt really "in" dorchester. It is more on the outskirts next to the UKs biggest trafficjam on the way to Weymouth and the football club.
(, Thu 29 Oct 2009, 21:14, closed)
I helped
build that Tesco - Prince Charles Approve Tithe Bar Tesco.

At the end of the day - just a Tesco with a water feature*

* and wonky planters in the car park ;-)

I almost got stuck in Dorchesater recently. We were only passing through but looking for somewhere to get some lunch. Took about half an hour driving through a suburban district where every road, and indeed every building, looked identical. Never did find any lunch, had to go to Bridport in the end.

The did kill the brewery

You can...
...still get Royal Oak, as the recipe is now brewed elsewhere. WIN!
