PostTop 10 Worst Places To Live In England 2019! Apparently.
by KK » Thu Feb 21, 2019 5:31 pm

Now in its 13th glorious year, we present the Worst places to live in England 2019. A record 42,572 readers voting for their least salubrious dump in this septic isle. Yet again, we have a new king of gooseberry fool tips. Is it your town?

With several Top 10 perennials falling out of the charts, it’s all change this year with a new entry taking the coveted crown. Anyway enough waffle, 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, our definitive Top 10 of the worst god-awful hell holes in England 2019, enjoy!

10. Blackburn
9. Oldham
8. Castleford
7. Blackpool
6. Rotherham
5. Hull
4. Doncaster (“Donny”)
3. Rochdale
2. Huddersfield

THE SHITTIEST TOWN IN ENGLAND IS...

1. Peterborough

Slamming into the charts for the first time taking the crown as the biggest dump in England, is Peterborough! This Cambridgeshire town was looking like another “also ran” right up until the last week of voting. We would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote. You make this Top 10 not just the opinion of a journalist, culled from statistics, but of the people. Anyway, enough of this, just how bad is Petersborough? Here’s what out illustrious contributors had to say:

- One thing to bear in mind, if booking a weekend get away in Peterborough, it is customary if a stranger holds eye contact with you for more than three seconds, to shout “WHAT”??? and become extremely aggressive.
- I lived in Peterborough for 15 years and all I can say is wow. what a strawberry floating DUMP
- They are without doubt some of the most aggressive, miserable, backwards, negative people I have ever come across.
- The atmosphere in Peterborough is draining. You feel totally isolated from the rest of the world and life in general, as though everything else is going on and you’re not part of it as you’re stuck in this dump.
- Take a trip into the town centre and it’s like walking onto the set of the Walking dead. Every manner of inbred mutant adorns the streets.

I thought Rotherham was a place on the up. And Hull is our City of Culture so can't be that bad.

More North South division propaganda.

Clearly no one who voted in the poll has sampled the delights of Westbury town centre, or Bognor Pier.

Consequently, here be my own craphole list...

1. Axminster
2. Trowbridge
3. Bognor Regis
4. Westbury
5. Glastonbury

I technically live in Oldham (Oldham postcode) but in Saddleworth which is a gorgeous place to live and was in the Sunday times list of best places to live in the UK ;). Oldham Town centre itself is a bit of a gooseberry fool hole but I've been to worse places.

I also used to work in Huddersfield, which again doesn't have the best town centre but there are some nice areas on the outskirts. From my experience of working in Huddersfield it does seem to be largely populated by banana splits so I can see why it would be high on the list.

Worse places than either of those could be any of the towns in Tameside (also Greater Manchester) like Ashton Under Lyne and Droylsden which are both absolute dumps.

You can tell this list was created by Southerners though! :roll:

Yorkshire/Lancashire is gooseberry fool shocker.

I'm surprised Stoke-on-Trent isn't there though, Waterworld's helping us keep our neck above water I guess.

Reading the main article in the OP, Oldham town centre actually looks pretty decent, far superior when compared with the gooseberry fool tips on my list.

Peterborough resident here and the town itself deserves all the criticism it gets but much of the nearby surrounding areas are pleasant.

I watched that "Skint Britain" program and Hartlepool didn't look great, one of my sisters lives in Doncaster (Bawtry) and its really nice.

Passed through Chard more times than i can count, i've seen better places, but as my list suggests, i've also seen a hell of a lot worse.
