Where do i start with Baldock? It’s a town with a lot of history due to it being a roman settlement many years ago. There is a market that not many people go to every Thursday, but it’s good the the tradition keeps going. As for the town high street itself, it’s mainly pubs. A few shops or cafes here and there but mainly pubs. Some are very nice for a drink and some are terrible!
The boot for example, head in there on a Friday night and you will see a bunch of youth playing pool, shouting and screaming getting slaughtered. Walk into the bar area and all the Baldock regulars gurning their face off, allegedly heading into the toilet ever ten minutes for another line.
Tesco’s is one of the main shops that brings people to baldock but as soon as you get there with out fail there will be a group of teenagers hanging around outside with a portable speaker playing gangser wannabe rap to the loudest it goes. The huts at a park called big park is filled with the chavs that think there something else. Smoking weed is a daily thing for most baldock teenagers with a quarter of the percentage think they make money selling two bags a week.
At night time baldock is fairly quiet, with the odd VW Polo screaming it down the high street at 80MPH with 5 people in the car. The Knights Templar School is decent. Many pupils are calm and educated but you get them ones, no explanation needed. The best part of baldock by far to live in is Clothal Common. Its a nice housing estate with a shop, a few teenagers lingering about but not to much worry about. The worst part is either by St Mary’s School, all the houses round there are awful! or the ‘Concrete jungle’. All around the Londis along London Road is dodgy.
All in all Baldock is better than the surrounding areas but still not the best 7/10.
