Brierley Hill is famous all over the UK because it is home to the Merry Hill Shopping Centre which was built 20 years ago. Brierley Hill and Merry Hill are some of the chavviest places in the UK.
Chavs and chavettes are hanging round Merry Hill at all hours, shopping and eating out. There’s even a JD Wetherspoons pub that’s just opened at Merry Hill – the Abraham Darby. Wetherspoons have tried to make it look posh but the chavs will undoubtedly wreck it. The nearby multi storey car park is full of bodykitted cars owned by chavs.
At night chavs turn up at Merry Hill in modified cars and race eachother at high speed around the complex. Chavs hang around the UCI cinema which has fallen in popularity because there is now a showcase cinema about 4 miles away at Castlegate in Dudley.
Away from Merry Hill are many more chav hang outs in Brierley Hill town.
The 1980’s Megabowl complex near Brierley Hill High Street is a chav hang out where chavs and chavettes hang round smoking and getting drunk. When they can be bothered they sometimes challenge eachother to a bowling game. The car park of the Megabowl is hang out for chavs who are mostly still of primary school age.
The 1960’s Delph estate near Brierley Hill town centre is made up of about 20 low and high rise blocks of council flats where most people living there are chavs or chavettes. Hardly any of them work. They spend hours on end hanging around on the landings of the flats, smoking and taking drugs.
A few years ago some chavs set fire to a pile of abandoned furniture and the flames spread into a block of flats which very nearly collapsed.
Brierley Hill is quite chavvy but there are no real chav hang out apart from Merry Hill and Megabowl.
