England is full of profound, picturesque beauty, with rolling hills and stunning architectural city hubs. With that said, it absolutely does have its sh*tholes to contend with and my god, when they’re bad, they’re bad.
Living in London, not too long ago I had to drive to the Lake District up in the North and while I’m not singling any places in particular out, I really did go through some utterly depressing dumps, in both the North and the South.
But which of England’s awful places stands paramount above the others as the absolute worst? That’s right; it’s Huddersfield. I know someone who’s just bought a house there…
Courtesy of ILIVEHERE, a survey was done to see what the worst ten places to live were in England, and there’s a few surprises on the list.
Conducting the poll, they said:
“Let’s get down to business of offending local councillors, dignitaries and meddlesome ratbags plus ruining the trade of slime ball lying estate agents.
It makes our day when they react to the new Top 10, desperately trying to polish a turd of a town.“
So here goes:
Also 9. Blackburn
Honestly I only know most of these places from lower-league football.
Bristol was a surprise, but the reasoning reads:
“Beneath the veneer of textbook overdone hipster pretentiousness is the same Bristol of old, where the West Country chavs spew out their own unique interpretation of the English language.“
They claim, meanwhile, that Dover is actually rubbish if you look past the white cliffs.
As for Huddersfield:
“There’s nothing but pound shops and a few coffee shops. It’s polluted, unclean and full of idiots. It’s a horrible place to live.“
Weird that they decided to sugarcoat it.
Where else is a contender? My Stoke friend says it’s appalling there so maybe that?
