The people have spoken, apparently, and England’s ’50 worst places to live’ in 2022 have been revealed.
Each year, the iLiveHere website runs a survey asking the public to dish the dirt on towns and cities across the country.
A total of 110,172 people responded for the 2022 survey – a record turnout according to the website – and the results are now available.
Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire claims the top spot this year, our dear neighbours in Liverpool sit fourth in the table, and the West Midlands town of Walsall is rather inexplicably named twice on the list.
Obviously, Manchester is nowhere to be found, but three Greater Manchester boroughs have been named among the ’50 worst places to live’ in England.
Here at the Manchester Evening News , we think it’s easy to see why people might want to give these three boroughs a wide berth, so we’ve compiled a list showing the very worst bits of each one.
1. Starting with Rochdale – which is just a concrete jungle really
2. Seriously, it’s so ugly
3. Rochdale has no history
4. Nothing has ever been achieved here
5. If you’re looking for entertainment in the borough, forget it
6. There’s nothing to do in the town centre either
7. It’s quiet in Oldham too
8. Another borough hit by the ugly tree
9. There’s no charm or character here
10. Even the wildlife is trying to escape
11. Oldham has never been particularly important
12. It’s hard to find a decent pint
13. While over in Bolton, you’d struggle to find something tasty to eat
14. Boltonians are famously dull folk
15. The buildings are uninspiring too
16. There’s never much happening in Bolton
17. It’s dead at night too
18. You can see why Bolton is one of the ‘worst’ places to live
