We have now been compiling our Top 10 worst places to live in England list for the last decade. There is no scientific method to all this, we just go by the volume of comments and local press outrage (because they know it's true). Think we've missed out a town or city? Think we have our Top 10 all wrong? Post your corrections in the comment section for our consideration. If your nomination makes it into the list, we'll inform the local press and kick up a stink. Offending local councillors, dignitaries and meddlesome ratbags plus ruining the trade of slime ball estate agents, makes our day! So for 2014 we present our definitive Top 10 of the worst god-awful hell holes in England, enjoy.

10. Barking & Dagenham

Some say Barking & Dagenham is the rough diamond of the East End, we like to think of it as a flawed gem. Here's what our readers have to say:

"Dagenham has all the charm of a fetid pool of primordial muck. If Chav heaven is in Romford, then Dagenham is the gateway between heaven and hell."

    Northampton never seems to make it to any of the crap towns lists, which is strange because a lot of the places that do, actually seem nicer than Northampton.

    The shopping here is dire, the trains are crap (being on a loop off the mainline takes its toll) and the new bus station causes gridlock. Whilst the ugly dark concrete caverns of the notorious old bus station loom over the town, well at least the old bus station worked.

    Another thing that’s strange is that Northampton is never considered to be crap in other parts of the UK and people think it’s a city and not a town, proving that most people don’t know anything about Northampton, Slough seems to be better known than Northampton, and Slough is about half the size of Northampton.

    People here consider a trip to Milton Keynes as a treat, but most of the country consider it as a curse.
    That says a lot about this town, Northampton…

  • The 576 Bus to Bradford

    I love Bradford. But I don’t live far from it. The shops have gone downhill a bit but that new pool in the centre is bang on though, loads of fun on a hot, sunny day, a veritable United Nations of harmony in my experience. And not a nicked, knackered shopping trolley or dead alcoholic in sight. Mind you that might have been a good day. ;)
