I grew up in one of the named towns (somewhere in the middle)
God, I got out of there as soon as I could!
That's a strange list. Aylesbury as the worst place? FFS. Yes, Plymouth definitely deserves to be on there.... but Axminster? Axminster is a lovely little town!
Well I lived in no 41 - Barnsley, when I was 22 for 7 year.s . Quite enjoyed my time there.
Studied at Huddersfield (no 2!!) for 3 years in the 80's . My memories of it were great!
Worked in Doncaster for 7 years (no 46) - it has some very nice areas/villages and a racecourse.
I now live a few junctions down the motorway from Luton (3) but have mainly only been there for the airport. Did go to the hospital there recently and I must admit it, and the area around it is a dump!
Not sure how accurate this is though 110,000 members isn’t too shabby. My home town (now a City) of Southend doesn’t feature. It’s still a London day tripper hotspot and the seafront has come on leaps and bounds from where it was 20 years ago but the High Street is desecrated and is a no go area after 6pm unless drugs are your thing. Jaywick is on the list and rightly so. It’s scandalous how landlords there are continued to get away with things. The other way of looking at that is it concentrates a lot of low lifes in one area but amongst all that is the usual underprivileged and needy.
Aside from watching football (badly timed this trip) the closest I get to Southend is visiting my parents on the outskirts.
