Worthing's really just a Brighton suburb. So go into the city and have gay bum sex or something.

As it sounds like you are aware, Mansfield has a really bad reputation but I'll try and keep this as balanced as possible.

Mansfield is just a typical post heavy Northern industrial town, yes Mansfield is in the east Mids but it has a Northern town feel to it. The town centers pretty dreary with the dominating shopping center looking like a grim brutalist concrete block, the nightlife is fairly dire but about the standard you would expect in a depressed area. To be fair the place has improved from its all time low in the early 90's when there was large amounts of drunken violence and regular day time muggings around the town center by assorted alchy's and junkies - that's largely in the past these days
What you said about the people is the real problem, around the turn of the centuary thousands migrated into the area to work at the pits, when that industry disappeared there was insufficient work for the local population which has led to a massive benefit's dependent culture. Compounding this is the fact anyone with any prospect of a career tends to get out as soon as

As I said the upside to this is cheap house prices, and with good transport links to Nottingham and reasonable links to Sheffield it means you dont really have to have much to do with the town itself.
As an example I bought a 3 bed room semi for just under 60k around 3 years away from the peak of the housing boom. If it means putting up with chavs old and young when I go shopping, for that price, big deal.

Best piece ever written about Mansfield -

Mansfield, in the Heart of Sherwood Forest (1 tree left) is a Busy market town(dodgy cheap clothes for sale). Famous for it's industrial heritage (pollution) mining roots (lot's of men with what looks like eyeliner on but actually coaldust in their eyes), and Robin Hood (who's traditional trade is still carried out with enthusiasm by the local residents) who reputedly roamed the surrounding areas with his merry men (pretending to be disabled people selling household goods for charity) during the middle age's. The town's wealth (new police station and courthouse) was built during the 18th and 19th century on textiles (only women have got jobs), and can be seen today in building's such as the Shoe Co Factory on Sutton Rd (falling down and bankrupt) and the giant Torrey factory in Forest town (Automated and stealing all the local water from it's own boreholes (I can't remember voting for a lower water table and higher water bills). Mansfield has always welcomed people with new religious ideas (Quaker's beaten up in Woodhouse 17th century) Visit the Meeting house (graves underneath Tesco's and Duel carrageway) where religious groups met frequently in times past. During the Jacobite rebellion Bonny Prince Charlie raised his standard in Mansfield and was greeted with the usual Mansfield Welcome (apathy). Bringing us up to date on our short introduction to Mansfield we find the quirky local character in all sections of the community both old, (Turn that Fuckin' music down!) and young (Boys="I'm gonna fuckin' kill you", Girls="take me away from this town and I'll give you and all your mates a blow job, by the way how much money do you earn?".

I'm going to be making a brief visit to Her Majesty the Queen's WIndsor this weekend, staying two nights. It is very short notice, so will I need to be sleeping rough in a park or are there some hostels offering immediate accomodation that are fairly cheap?

If sleeping rough is how it's going to be, any suggestions on a good quiet/preferably private area?

I'm about to visit Portsmouth soon. Are there anonymous from there? I don't believe various leaflets, is it a dirty port town with port whores and drunken sailors, or a nice quiet seashore place, or a crowded beach place?

I did actually suggest a pub trip for us South Brummies but then retracted my post upon consideration that it would probably be awful. But if you guys are up for buying a round each then I'm game - I'm not sure where would be best in this area as much like you I tend to do my drinking in town. Is the British Oak on the Pershore Road still a haunt for BNP supporters? Oh, the Selly Park Tavern is pretty nice and quiet, haven't been there in a few years. And they sell Purity there if I recall correctly. I'd suggest there.

Is Sheffield as nice at its wikipedia page makes it out to be?


> Estimated to contain over two million trees, Sheffield has more trees per person than any other city in Europe, and according to Sheffield City Council, it is England's greenest city, a claim that was reinforced when it won the 2005 Entente Florale competition. It has over 170 woodlands

> The racial composition of Sheffield's population was 91.2% White

> Although a city, Sheffield is informally known as "the largest village in England", because of a combination of topographical isolation and demographic stability. It is the largest city in the U.K. that does not form the basis of a conurbation, and is relatively geographically isolated, being cut off from other places by a ring of hills. The land surrounding Sheffield was unsuitable for industrial use, and now includes several protected green belt areas.

> In 1956, Hunt stated that "Modern Sheffield, a flourishing industrial city with over half a million inhabitants and a world-wide reputation, still retains many of the essential characteristics of the small market town of about five thousand people from which it has grown in the space of two and a half centuries." A 1970 survey has supported Hunt's characterisation, with more Sheffield residents able to identify a "home area" within the city than people from other large county boroughs were, and greatly more Sheffield residents expressing an unwillingness to leave their city than people from other large county boroughs did. This latter unwillingness was noted, by the survey analysis, as far more characteristic of the response that would be obtained by surveying a "a small urban or rural authority rather than a large county borough".

I think you're wrong about the posh areas there lad, Totley is a bit odd, mix of rich and nice, just nice and some random estates.

And add Broomhill, Fulwood, Crookes into the list of nice/posh (bit of a mix) Broomhall's a bit odd though.

I live in Netherthorpe - which is one of the worst districts of Sheffield - and its still pretty nice.

I chuckled heartily at >>2150 because its so true. I would say that ~80% of people I live near are on some form of welfare (from an extremely unscientific and judgemental system based on looks alone) and yet I don't see any real/violent crime or feel threatened at all.

If anyone cares I could probably get you a link to a pdf report called "A Tale of Two Cities" by David Blunkett which takes an interesting look at how and why Sheffield has the poorest and richest council districts in the north right next to each other.
