I wont give you a huge tour of all of stevenage but i will give you a warning about a part of it where i used to live.
steer clear! the Glebe in particular is and has been for some time a wasteland. The glebe is just a small group of shops near a primary school.Charming. These shops include the following…. Pizza/Kebab in 1. Fish (of some unknown origin) and chips, a Martins, a Pearce’s Bakery, a Barbers, a Hair Salon, A Ladbrokes, an offie, a Londis, and a pharmacy amongst other small chav-theif targets.
Nicely situated between 2 dykey pubs, the Squirell, which is coincidently next to another grimey cornershop, and the other pub which has had more names than a chav has had fags. Currently named the Chells Family Pub, it intices young decent families in with its offer of smoke, booze and a sunday carvery that i could prepare better and cleaner if i had just been working for SBC cleaning up last nite’s puke stains.
So all in all….most evenings include people with the collective IQ of a duck getting slaughtered, puking on a stale kebab or pizza, (depending on how much money they could steal) and then venting their energy on the nice primary school which i used to go to. Thank God it put 7ft metal fences up.
Beware of the guy who you will no doubt see patrolling the streets of Chells. It matters not to him what time of day it is, he always has beer in hand, its amazing he isnt unconscious by lunchtime.
Oh and there is a small bike store in the Glebe, the target of much graffiti. There are also the ‘Glebe Gang’ to watch out for. Take that duck mentioned earlier and put it on who wants to be a millionnaire. It will waddle away with more money than the ‘glebe gang’. They are SOOOO clever that their double-digit IQ got one killed by falling off the rooves of the flats above the shops when they were drinking.
