The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Darwen.

The Worst Things
  • The Roxy. Golden Grill takeaway shop. Too many thick scally dickheads.
  • People don't see what good bands Darwen has - If All Else Fails, India Mill and Rhythmic Intent all write ORIGINAL stuff and it's mighty fine
  • thick people, crime, litter...
  • Parks at night. Dog fouling. Fly tipping(that's illegal dumping of rubbish not flipping blue -bottles over!)
  • Bolton Road gives the wrong impression of Darwen as a whole
  • borin as hell,......hell,.at least it don't rain there,.like rainforest in darwen,
  • The weather, quality of public transport, facilities, local amenities, housing, pubs, clubs, council estates inhabited by scottish exiles who think that they are the mafia of the north as they sell you shit cannabis resin, smackheads trying to sell you stolen fish fingers from Kwick Save in the pub, dog shit, back alleys full of used syringes, vomit and cats piss, etc etc etc..
  • it smells funny sometimes as does blackburn, theres nothing much to do, hence turning to alcohol, darwen sucks.
  • With friendliness comes curtain twitching and gossip. Harwood Street. Looks like a shanty town. The Anchor Estate (see above).
  • How long ya got - nah - its a pissheads paradise
  • The drunken drugged kids on street corners. Destroying everyone peace and happiness.
  • Shops
