Ok, I’m sorry but this is not ‘biggin’ up’ Saffron Walden as a “Chav Town” as said by enemyoftownfolk and alexandre2k. I have lived in S/W all my life and if you actually had a look around you would find out that this little market town has a lot of ‘normal’ 20-something’s as well. Now as for the common being a place, where after 7pm all the Chavs ‘hang out’ in there cars, I’m not disputing that, it is correct, but I personally go out after 7pm spinning fire with my mates, who I may add, happen to listen to decent music (Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine, Metallica, etc), we also wear non-Chav clothes as well, including black, wide leg trousers, and yet funnily enough I have never seen anyone get beaten up. I walk across the common at least 4 times a day as I live the other side and not once have a seen people get in trouble. My friends and I have got in more trouble with the ‘Pigs’ for spinning fire than these so called people that ‘drug deal’, I would like to mention that I know a few drug dealers and non of them are stupid enough to do it on the common considering the Police Station looks out over the common down at the bottom where the ‘dark area’ is.

I do have to admit that the ‘Lizzy’ and The ‘Shite’ Horse, are filled with Chavs at the weekend, also you do need to know self-defence and they are filled with 14-15 years old, but I am not willing to her someone slag off the X-Keys which is a pub of where I am on the Pool Team and although you do get a few Squadies in there it is actually a very well run pub and does have a ‘local’ pub feel to it. And the Temeraire, yes if you just go but what you see in the window you will think it is a place for Chavs, if you actually ventured inside you will find the ‘normal’ people that go in there as well, and before you go calling S/W a Chav town, go the ‘duke’ at the top of the High Street and you will see there is not a Chav in sight. S/W has got ,a lot of Chavs but what place hasn’t. So enemyoftownfolk the fact that you wrote your article at 20:27 on Valentines Day obviously means that you had nothing better to do and alexandre2k get your facts straight mate.

The ‘normal’ people of S/W slag the Chavs off too, we know they exist but there is as many of us as there is them. Lots of Love!!!

The good old Historic market town of Saffron Walden has seriously gone downhill in the past few years.
Chavs now pretty much own the town after about 7 pm, swarming all over the place like a plaugue of burberry clad rats. In this lovely town, you will come across the most unoriginal people, idiots all wearing a parka, nike dunks or reeboks, a baseball cap with random american sports teams all over them, and drinking stella or for the ladies, blue WKD. The best place to “hang” is the common, where a group of 20 somethings with no lives drive their ‘cool’ ford fiestas and vauxhaull novas, and playing some guy “chatting” really loud with some generic drum n bass music in the background.
I had the good fortune of walking across the top of the common a few weeks ago when I was attacked and thoughroughly beaten by about twenty 15 year olds, simply because I “was wearing black.”
A regular patrol of chavs circle the common, their loud exhausts making clear that it is their territory.
In the dark of the common, where no lights can reach, many a strange occurance happens. Drug dealing is common in the dark, you are able to pick up very, very expensive drugs if you have a few hours to spare so you can wait. Saffron Walden is one of the most expensive places around to buy.
On entering parts of the town, you will be frequently asked for a “snout” which translates into ciggarette.
There are 4 roads which go around the common and the centre of the town, and beyond these roads is deemed the ‘safe zone’ where there are little chavs to encounter.
Apart from the swarms of chavs, there are the pub peoples. Popular pubs to go to are the White Horse, where it is suggested to learn self-defense or bring a knife if you want to go in. There is the Temeraire, where at points in the evening dozens of drunken chaps come out and harrass people. Many 14 and 15 year olds can purchase a pint at the “Lizzy” where the landlords dont care who they serve, this is the start of many a trouble.
There is so much wrong with this town it is unbelievable. I woukd write more, but you would all get bored
