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

i spent the first 19 years of my life here, a town effectionately refered to by commuters as "boringwood" and by residents as "our shithole". the residents assesment is the more accurate of the two.
highlights include:

the greenfields cafe; located in prime real estate in the centre of town, serving (piss weak) tea, (plastic) cheese sandwhiches, and (cuppa)soup of the day (lighly stirred, as to still contain lumps of powder) served with a bread roll (or a stale burger bun). this is a friendly family run business, and not at all a gang lead front for a coke dealership 'onist guv.

the foundations theatre; or more specifically, the foundations of a theatre, construction on which was halted, persumably when the company involved realised that they were trying to build a theatre in cocking borehamwood. a place where the cinema struggles to stay open.

elstree film studios; so proud of their locale they try and pretend they're somewhere else.

the big brother house; also apparently located in "elstree", when the bb house is too good for you, you're basically fucked.

i could go on (the pub where paul merson was caught snorting coke! ect,) but frankly i'm depressing myself a bit now.

I used to work there occassionally
there was much gossip after the incident where that bloke got set on fire in a pub and ran down the high street screaming and burning to death.

i thought it was at a bus stop
though i wouldn't put it past there being more than one "man set on fire" incident.
