Sedgley is a town in the west midlands which is near to larger towns like Dudley and Wolverhampton. It is swarming with chavs and the town’s chav population is increasing by the day.
The town centre in Sedgley has three chav invested pubs in the Bull Ring area. The Court House is an ancient pub which has been there for about 200 years and with the high crime levels in Sedgley its a shame the Court House isn’t a crown court like it used to be. Chavs as young as 13 get served in there by using fake ID’s but the bar staff will serve just about anyone because there has been so many problems with aggressive customers losing their temper with bar staff who won’t serve them. Underneath the Court House is a passageway which runs under the traffic island into the basement of the Red Lion which used to be a prison but has long been turned into a pub. The Court House is another chavvy pub where chavs mostly underage go to get blind drunk. Sedgley town centre’s third chavviest pub is the Clifton which is part of the posh Wetherspoon chain but hardly any posh people go there because it is crowded with chavs who take advantage of the cigarette machine if they can’t get served in an off licence like Virks or Hadens. The man in Virks now serves fags and booze to anyone and most evenings you can catch about 10 or 15 chavs crowding outside with a can of beer and a fag.
Now a bit about some chavvy estates in Sedgley.
The Beacon estate is a slum of old council houses occupied by mostly chav families who dump rubbish on eachothers gardens and leave rusting old bangers on their driveways. One family on the estate had a feud with their neighbours and the son and his mate ending up getting thrown into prison for setting another neigbours house on fire.
Another family on the Beacon have 2 teenaged daughters who have about 5 babies between them each off different fathers. Some of the worst families on the estate never wash themselves or their homes and turn the whole place into a cesspit.
Beacon Hill at the top of the estate is a dumping ground for litter and stolen cars. Gypsies have paid a visit to the hill many times and always leave a mountain of rubbish behind when they move on.
Tudor estate off the Dudley Road is a chavvy old council estate like the Beacon. It is at the back of county wallpapers an old cinema which sells cheap wallpaper to the hard up people living in the area. One chav on the Tudor has spent the last 5 years spray painting his name all over Sedgley and spraying insults about how his enemies stink like a curry house.
Next to the Tudor is a much newer estate which has always been called Giro City because the whole estate lives on benefits. It is home to some of Sedgley’s chavviest people including some who spend their lives roaming the streets shouting abuse at residents and throwing bricks at windows. The Giro joins onto a big field where chavs race around on stolen motorbikes and set abandoned cars on fire. A few years ago in the early days of chavs a 20 strong gang of chavs from the Giro lifted a battered old Metro on top of a wall and left it there until it fell off the ball and was crushed to a pulp. Chavs can often be seen crowding around cars on the estate driven by adults who will sell them booze and fags which they wouldn’t get anywhere else. Giro estate only appeared in the last 15 years but its already one of the most notorios council estates in the country.
About 2 miles from Sedgley town centre in the Gornalwood area is the Boundry Hill estate which is yet another crumbling old council estate full of chavs. 99% of the people at Boundry Hill don’t have a garage so their cars are left outside where they can be stolen. The fields near Boundry Hill around Ellowes Hall school littered with burnt out cars which were stolen by local chavs.
There are 2 private estates in Sedgley noted for chavs, Brownswall and Northway. Cabin pub on the Northway used to be popular with chavs until a mean new landlord arrived earlier this year and banned under 18’s from even entering the pub. He paid for his meanness when a gang of young chavs scratched his car with a brick end. The car park outside the Cabin and the shops that join onto it is a sort of exhibition zone for chavvy cars most nights. Several older chavs on the estate show off their bodykitted Corsa’s and 206’s which are the spitting image of the modified cars you see in Maxpower magazine. There was also a decrepit old Vauxhall Astra from the Beacon which used to make an appearence until December 2003 when the driver was off guard for one second. A gang of older chavs jumped into the car and drove it away with the owner stranded on the car park. The Astra was later found torched at the side of the Dudley Road.
There are two chav families on the Brownswall, one on Brownswall Road with 3 kids who run the streets and fight their neighbours and another by the deserted football field whose son has been known to the local police since he was 10 years old for spraying grafhiti, getting into street fights threatening his neighbours. The wife is easily recognisable as she is about 50 and looks and dresses like Tina Turner. He did time in prison after video cameras captured him spraying his name all over shop windows.
There are some famous grafhiti words which have sprung up since the chav revolution in Sedgley some years ago. TOAF or TOFF is a tag which was invented by a group of chavs targeting another boy who was the richest in his class and the only boy in his class who went to church. Toaf spread across the midlands and has also been rumoured to have spread abroad. The same gang of chavs have also invented the tag BORIS which refers to a Russian looking boy from Sedgley. One of the gang even painted Boris on an electricity substation outisde the boy’s house on the Brownswall estate at the other side of Cotwall End valley to Boundry Hill. 2RANK and BASE were barely readable tags which appeared in Sedgley and most of the midlands about 3 years ago and nobody has ever discovered who the culprit was. SIBBO is a local chav who sprays his tag all over the midlands and is so famous for it that nobody knows his real name. TURLEY is one of the veteran chavs in Sedgley whose tag is sprayed on just about every wall, shutter and door in the town. BURNSY is another of Sedgley’s veteran chavs who has spent most of his life daubing his tag all over the place without even being caught.
A bit about the schools in Sedgley.
Dormston near the town centre is one of the chavviest schools in the UK. The chavs who go there don’t give a damn about it until they are kicked out and can’t stay away from the place. They sell cheap fags to the school’s youngest chavs who don’t stand a chance of getting served even at Virks. They then attract the attention of the staff at Dormston who tell them to go away but the chavs don’t go away until the police come. Chavs have also paid visits to the school out of school hours by climbing over the prison like fence and smashing windows. The new Dormston sports arts centre is already a vandalized shack even though it was only built 5 years ago, although some of it was the work of the school’s pupils. I’ve heard a story that chavs at the school started to wreck the classroom blocks to get revenge on the headmaster who banned them from wearing burberry caps.
High Arcal is a few hundred yards down the road from Dormston off the Tipton Road. It is surrounded by the fields which lead to the Giro and Valley estates. Teachers are always on guard at the gates at the start of school, the end of school, at break and at lunch, so there’s no drug dealing at the gates here. But the rest of the school is surrounded by a high fence where older chavs used to hand over fags and sometimes even booze and drugs to the mini chavs. All of this stopped when the strict headmaster found out and had CCTV fitted in order to stop his pupils being given drugs. The odd vandal breaks in and makes their mark on the classroom blocks at High Arcal but I hear that the vandalism at Dormston is miles worse.
Ellowes Hall is about 2 miles from Sedgley on the Boundry Hill council estate. There was once a time when parents collecting their children in cars couldn’t park anywhere near the gates because so many drug dealers were hanging about. When they were told to clear off the dealers hung around the surrounding fields and passed drugs through the fences. That’s going back quite a few years now. Ellowes Hall’s biggest problem is now chavs who rule the school and drag its name down. I hear that the headmaster at Ellowes has surrendered in his war of chavs because the more he tried to stop them from wearing Burberry the more they wore it.
Down in Woodsetton which is almost in Tipton there are hardly any chavs at all. The pubs are swarming with old men who sit up the corner and drink a pint of beer without having to watch out for flying beer bottles or bar stools which are being thrown by underaged chavs who are angry for being refused alcohol.
If it wasn’t for the Woodsetton area then Sedgley should be renamed Chavtown UK but that title should go to Dudley.
