Last year we thought this small West Yorkshire town making an entry in our Top 10, was a one hit wonder. Turns out that is not the case. Falling just two places to No.8 is Castleford or ‘Cas Vegas’ as it’s apparently known locally. Here’s what out contributors had to say about this dump:
Recent highly scientific research (namely walking down the high street) points to one in three inhabitants below the age of 30 fitting neatly into the chav box.
In a town where everybody is a blood relative of the person next to them, you have to wonder whether the essence of chavdom stems from bad breeding, or in the case of Castleford, possible interbreeding.
A trip to Castleford is a real eye opener… and you need to keep your eyes open because if you dare to close them, they’d have your wallet faster than you could say ‘XR3i.’
Suffice to say, if someone wanted to give Yorkshire an enema, this is where they’d stick the tube.
