    My Nan used to live there when I was a kid. It's always been a dive - I used to spend a week there every summer. I'm not surprised it's gone worse - it was chalets and bingo.

    Grays is pretty bad from what I saw when delivering to the GP's.

    Notice it says England - the fact that there are places like that in Wales and Scotland and perhaps worse doesn't register.

    But then they were Labour strongholds and always will be I guess.

    Looking at it on google earth - most of it looks fine, and the crappy streets look like holiday villa's ....maybe they have that not enough people in residence to get proper council tax paid etc.

  10. Looks like the kind of place that gets flooded all the time, all the chalets are up on plinths. Probably was just holiday homes without planning control. So now you can't get insurance so it's not worth spending a penny on anything. One day the sea will clean it up, in the meantime a great place to dump your useless junkie brother or divorced husband.

    Bet it comes OK in the summer. Good for swimming and fishing I bet.

    @Mrs Top Banana Racing is still in a state of shock.
