 crap towns book cover

Just got this depressingly-funny new book in at work.
Guess what? Billingham is in it! (thats where I’m from). Rated as the 35th worst town in Britain it mentions the Stalinesque architecture of the town centre and the high death rate from heroin addiction. Ahhh, no place like home.


Heres the original article from A slightly different one actually appears in the book.

And, a Billingham resident stands up for the town (why oh why?).


One comment

  1. Yeah they say it’s ranking in it, but aparantly they never even visited half the locations in the book! There was a huge 2 page spread on it in the gazzette… big Über battle with residents over it all :S
