Living in Consett
Written by Anonymous Visitor and posted in Durham

Welcome to Consett! The inbred rusty-old-trampoline furnished capital of the North.

Once a thriving steel industrial town, now a graveyard for old trampolines, rusty bikes and old pissy mattresses.

Thursday is flea market day, where most locals bring their gammy legs out for a hobble down Middle St. with the chimps for a flakey pasty.

One gob on a stick with 3 kids to 9 Dads was heard to say ‘so i says, and she goes, and i like, so she went, and she said’ as she wrapped her face around a fag puffing away with no teeth because her latest carpet carrying jobless lazy skagheed fella knocked em out for drinking the last of the cheap cider.

Little Ronaldo doesn’t like pasties, it serves no purpose than to wipe away the tram lines from each nostril to save his tongue from licking the salty tracks.

Cats go missing daily causing national manhunts on facebook. Widespread panic because tiddles has popped 3 doors down to Beryl’s because she has better tuna.

Yes, come to Consett where houses are 2 a penny and the legal line of cousin has been brushed under the carpet far too often.

    Went up last year to my home town. Took my wife up with me, she had never been before. Within 2 min of me going into a shop, my wife was spoken to by a lady who you would think knew my wife for years. Very friendly. Had a brekkie in a cafe, where locals asked how we were etc. In short a friendly place.
    I know about Blackhill, bridgehill, Leadgate etc. Good and bad everywhere.

    The article about Consett is at best the srawlings of an irritated man child. Badly written & sounds like someone’s having a personal problem ? Maybe his ex is from there ? Consett may not be a posh area but it has some amazing people who help others in the community. Street friends a group who go put at night to help people. Consett community trust who help vulnerable people/families. Maybe your time would be better spent writing about these groups rather than letting your personal prejudices dictate your articles information.
