    Battle of the worst places in England

    Easy enough concept, a battle to crown the worst, direst, most unpleasant place in England. Hopefully the likes of cpr, Goughy, Corrin, Brumby and Mitchell will have a good input. Reckon we'll go with 64 or 32 places.

    I'll get the ball rolling with some..


    Batley
    Blackpool
    Bolton
    Bradford
    Bridgewater
    Bristol
    Burton upon Trent
    Cambourne
    Colchester
    Coventry
    Darlington
    Dewsbury
    Dover
    Evesham
    Gravesend
    Great Yarmouth

    Halifax
    Haworth
    Hull
    Immingham
    Keighley
    King's Lynn

    Milton Keynes
    Mirfield
    Morecambe
    Moss Side
    Newport
    Nottingham
    Oxford
    Plymouth

    Ive enjoyed the few times Ive had in Keighley but had problems on a daily basis in Bradford (ranging from the mild to the very serious). I seriously dont have a good word to say about the place.

    Ive even really enjoyed places such as Peterborough, Doncaster and Darlington that are not supposed to be very nice.

    How about Oxford as a darkhorse? Croyden was poor as well, as is Rotherham. Though, again, not a patch on Bradford.

    Doncaster is a godawful place. Been there to play hockey once and the team bus nearly got bricked about 5 minutes after entering the actual place. Just so souless and totally devoid of any character.

    Southend
    Great Yarmouth (winner for me)
    Romford
    Plymouth
    Truro
    Wroxham
    Staines


    Great Yarmouth is the worst place I've been to in England, followed by Southend. I would nominate Barry as well.

    Saved by the fact it is possibly the best night out in England and lightyears ahead of Rotherham and Barnsley as a town.

    To add to the list- Betjeman didnt have much good to say about Slough
