Britain's top 10 'crap towns' revealed - does your area make the list?
The poll from ilivehere.co.uk claims these are the UK's least inspiring towns and cities - and some locals aren't holding back. This first was publicized in February in the Daily Mirror - https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/britains-top-10-crap-towns-14031127 - but with the holiday period upon us I thought it a good moment to recuperate!
Here a resume:
1 - Peterborough
2 - Huddersfield
3 - Rochdale
4 - Doncaster
5 - Hull
6 - Rotherham
7 - Blackpool
8 - Castleford
9 - Oldham
10 - Blackburn
Personally I don’t know every place, but most of these, and I wouldn’t have placed Blackpool or Peterborough in there. I was half expecting Reading or Slough from Berkshire to peep in.
Which ones would you have kept, and which others would you have introduced?!
Hellfire, can't understand why Wolverhampton didn't make that list, best thing about it is Fred's and the two guitar shops.
Strangely enough I look forward to the Peterborough fixture , very pleasant down by the river and certainly not Blackpool even though it is not quite like it was 50 odd years ago.
My list would include Margate, Luton and most if not all of the London EAST post codes, Leyton, Walthamstow, Plaistow, East Ham etc.
Is the author Southern by any chance?
Got no problem with Blackpool being on there but the likes of Slough and Luton are noticably absent.

I could go on

Just needs investment which will have a snowball affect on properties but that's years and years away.

Yep that is a grim drive towards the City Centre. Remember it well when working at the Marriott in the City Centre. Once you're in the centre though it's very nice. Not sure the same can be said about Blackpool.
