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

Telford and its Many Islands
Telford: the only town so bereft of entertainment, they name their roundabouts. Not once, but twice.

1) The official name (xxxx-roundabout)
2) The local name (yyyy-island)

The local sense of humour is so strong, they gave the following name to the roundabout outside Western Europe's biggest arms dump: Falklands Island.

To be fair, it does have 3 large field guns on it.

In this town, they love them so much, there are hundreds of Islands [sic]; some with one road in, and one road out.

They must have sat there in a Friday afternoon planning meeting and said (in their demi-midlands accent):

"Bored... whaddarewegonnadew?"
(random finger pointing at map)

Could be worse, I went to school in one of the satellite towns - Telford was a metropolis to us. You could get a train to Wolverhampton and *everything*.

Edit: 1st time posting (rather than just replying) woO! That's how much I hate the place.

I worked there for a year. The mundane 'satellite' suburbs with their kwiksave and chippy are all awful. And who's idea was it to put all of the companies in a nice sounding place like Stafford Park, the only park without a tree for miles.

A nice pub in Priorslee though.

Telford = Terrible
I HATE the islands! I know you think it's crap because you're excited about getting the train TO Wolverhampton.
