me I'd have to say Silvertown
silvertown's miles away from you
It made me a little uneasy, put it that way. Dock Road in particular.
this was a few years ago, I hear they've done the area up a bit.
They were quite nice.
any idea which flat you were looking at?
It's a nice estate, the buildings are well-insulated and well-designed except for the wiring and the rubbish chutes. I recommend it to anyone.

but i'm applying for a job there, so...um...dunno
To my shame I lived there for the first 18 years of my life, I've never been to a worse place and am residing in Barnsley now which is saying something!
I don't know why I'd ever want to go there.
If you're ever in Padstow you could get the ferry across though I suppose.
and left none the wiser. It's really really dull, with no obvious centre or village, and lots of ridiculously posh houses which look very out of place.
where do you live then? I'm about 40 minutes from Northampton.
as i officially lived there for about 8 years
found out at christmas that there are actually quite decent parts
bout 45 min from where i work
This thread is cursed
the one time i tried my car was it by an ariculated lorry so I took it as a sign - steer clear
THe only time I wne in was at 3am in the morning to go into the car park to get back onto the motorway.
You've just lost a ton of your upper-middle-class points. I'm disappointed.
All of Hertfordshire.
Not much choice when you live in Windsor.
reeks of piss, even from outside the front door
Though Smee's is a good one too. Don't much like my neighbours.
never in a million years
it's not a bad place, certainly no worse than anywhere else in the north
I drove through it once.
It smells funny.
...which is silly really as it's supposed to be lovely.
nice market from what i remember.
the world famous bernard manning club.
just no appeal really
I have just never got around to going there, even though it is supposed to be a beautiful part of the Welsh countryside.
When in Doha: maybe Bahrain? Not interested. But I'd certainly like to go to Damascus.
only place I've ever seen wild horses and red kites
yes we may have one of, if not the, highest rate of teenage pregnancies in the country but seriously its not all that bad.certainly no worse than leeds or manchester.
I went to Silvertown once, it was a bit boring. Lots of new apartments and empty streets. It was better 30 years ago when it was derelict warehouses, although the people of Silvertown might disagree.
for the first time a few months ago, despite living in London my whole life.
i was in a buscrash there once. (oh and lived there for a year)
ALSO SEE: COVENTRY
Tyldesley, Astley, Wigan, Leigh to the West.
Weaste, Hulme, Longsight to the South.
but there's nothing to see/do here so fair point.
I really want to go cos it's got boats n mean time n shit.
Can anyone recommend any good pubs there? THinking of organising a crawly thing....
by the river. Quite a few good pubs around there.
I guess Newcastle and its surrounding territories. No thanks.
(appart from match day, and that doesn't count because I only see the ground)
