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 lived there for 6 months. Reasons include:

In the one cold autumn that I was there most people walked around in just a T-Shirt presumably trying to convince themselves of sunnier climates elsewhere.

Pubs contained nobody younger than 45 and the one person my age that I spoke to asked me where he could get clean needles.

Frontierland has the scariest and oldest rides I have ever been on. I genuinely feared for my life.

The one time I went out for a meal the maitre'd was so bored and drunk that he pulled up a chair and joined us. He was very drunk and the conversation was neither pleasant or coherent.

People die there, the old, the chinese and the bored alike.

There was a massive pile of rubble behind the station, 2 months after living there I ventured behind said rubble and discovered the other half of the town.

True, this was over 10 years ago and it might well have turned into a trendy place for wankers but I some how doubt it.

Frontierland is dead and gone, but the promenade has been done up nicely and the big art-deco hotel on the seafront has been refurbished beautifully. The rest of the town desperately needs to catch up, though.

they'd catch up
if the heroin didnt keep distracting them.

I just can never work out why they keep thinking its going to be the new brighton of the north. The absence of london and the existence of every other town in britain who thinks the same might make that a litle difficult. oh and the weather. and the heroin. and the common people.

God they had this terrible fun house thing with death slides and stuff that was lethal after a few beers...as the sea wall nearly was when i fell off it after a night at the Empire.

Morcombe was the ideal getaway
when you lived in Barrow-In-Furness.

All grim back streety.

It was either lake windermeme or morcombe.
