The Worst Things in Abbey Wood, Greater London*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Abbey Wood.

The Worst Things
  • Being pushed into the water by the Biology teacher's dog when on a field trip on the marshes 1972? - but now it seems good.
  • Literally nothing to do if you're between 15 and 30. People not within this limit can appareciate the woodlands though.
  • Station Cars, Wilton Road, 020 8311 1199 AWFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE rude, lack telephone courtesy. use them at your own peril.
  • Chavs/townies/pikies. But everywhere in the world has them. So lets just pretend they're not there.
  • People who don't recognise and support the effort going into the area from local groups, the radio station and the school community.
  • Ugly girls mouthy girls that cannot fight
  • people.the way it looks.nothing fun to parks or antthing.there is Rochdale park wich is never open so u have to climb overe fence and needs swings slides
  • The "white line owners" who are taking over Abbey Wood by insisting their white line is twice the length of their car and ensuring no one else has a hope in hell of being able to park!
  • The scumbags who vandalise property with graffiti. We are onto them though.
  • The worst things are those that always slam Thamesmead and the people there. There are many decent, hardworking families who live on Thamesmead and go about their lives without causing trouble.
  • Litter. Dogs Mess. People who complain about Abbey Wood - they should go elsewhere!
  • The park around the back of Eynsham drive shops it's where all the pykes hang around you also get all the young kids who dream ov running abbeywood (between you and me they have no chance).
  • Lots of fights in Pubs
  • Thamesmead: The women are (and this is not a generalisation) foul-mouthed, black-rooted, flip-flop wearing harridans with more sovereigns than brain cells. Their children are monkey-faced mini rioters without an ounce of respect for anyone or anything. Thamesmead will one day implode (I hope) and disappear up it's own festering backside.
  • Yobby kids and parents that don't care or are so dim they can't see their doped up kids and the damage they do to the area.
  • The annoying minority (unfortunately usually living on benefits) who do not care for their council houses or their environment.
  • I just hate it when people get stabbed, don't you!
