I am aghast that Thetford has until now failed to feature on this site. I have a theory: Everybody who lives in or visits Thetford is a ****.
This neatly explains its absence hitherto, as ***** themselves would surely not be interested in a website such as this.
I work on the outskirts of the town and have ventured in to its midst only on a handful of occasions. As such I cannot claim to be a Thetford expert; I offer this up only for the sake of completeness and as a warning to anyone thinking they may like a visit.
Don’t get me wrong, There are nice parts of the area: the forest is great, but the real animals don’t live in the trees.
The number of abandoned, often horribly mangled, cars along the A11 is testimony to Thetford’s true nature. Passing cars often have to swerve to avoid burberry/lonsdale clad youths, caps on heads and trousers bizarrely tucked into socks (have they been cycling?) playing pedestrian chicken over the A11 which acts mercifully as a bypass. Should they have put it further from town, one might ask. Let’s hope its role in culling the local population vindicates it. Viva Darwin.
Thetford is a dark place indeed.
