Feeling rather masochistic tonight...

Show pics of all the cruddier/unconventional parts of town for us to all ''laud'' over... :drool: or even just little annoyances that you think ruin a street such as tarmac instead of cobbles and so on...

They dont have to be recent, so you can show old pics of places pre-redevelopment and what not :yes:


I'll Start, the most obvious and worst offenders are these three beauties:

Nelson street





The Pithay (aka Pithaytic) area... which is funnily enough just off Nelson street...



Broadweir which is also by the Pithay which is-, seeing a pattern here?

Huge surface car parks and buildings that face away from the street, stupid 60s, 70s, and 80s planners :bash:



Streetscape, what streetscape?



Talk about your dead frontages...



What about a motorway slicing right through the middle of the town centre



I think I'll win at this thread ;)

Interesting thread!! Motorways through the city are just the worse. I've never been to Glasgow (and I hear it's lovely by the way) but that massive motorway running through it just looks horrible on a map. Must split the city right in two?

well, in all fairness it would have to have a town centre to slice up ;)

personally i wouldnt say Telford was the worst although it is undoubtably meh, it has its merits... kind of!

^^ Wow, I'm surprised that something that soulless actually exists. Here was me thinking "only in America". :eek:hno:

There are loads in Auckland that scream "yuck" but this isn't the forum for posting them.
Loads here in Canada too. The worst "downtown" Liverpool street I can remember was Pall Mall. I hated that street. But that was just my own personal opinion, others are welcome to disagree.

Nice buildings, but People not welcome at ground level:-




I think this tread needs a poll, it'll be nice to see Telford win again...
Ah yes, who could forget tht we have thebest ****.

I'm surprised at these buildings, I would have thought that the local planning authority would have strongly pushed for some street interaction there :nuts:

Edit, I think i have some Birmingham ones as well











:puke:
