Britain's top 10 'cr*p towns' - 2019

Seen this?

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/b ... s-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?!

Pretty accurate as far as I'm concerned.

I'd personally put Oldham higher up & Hull would definitely be in my top two but that's just changing the order.

What a load of codswallop. Typical Daily Mirror rubbish. 'Crap' can be found in every town in the country, as well as beautiful areas too!

They are mainly Northern ex mill towns now heavily populated with immigrants. You could add Dewsbury, Batley, Burnley to that list. Paid a visit to PE1 last week ; it was like visiting a foreign country. Going up to Huddersfield this weekend ; will check it out but not optimistic.

If it was immigrants then Boston would have slaughtered it. I doubt there's any more immigrants in most of those towns than any other.

It's because they're shitholes & Peterborough certainly fits that bill.

This list is over six months old. It first appeared in the Daily Express. Daily Mirror must have had a bloke called Phil Page writing for them last week.
