The Worst Things in Haywards Heath, West Sussex*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Haywards Heath.

The Worst Things
  • The whole town - A soul destroying place that makes Chechnya seem like an appealing getaway...
  • Absolutely nothing to do...just nothing. I've never been in such a boring place as Haywards Heath...if you don't live here, then do yourself a favour and DON'T move here :)
  • Everything else? The people, the architecture, the lack of things to do...
  • Kids here strut around thinking they're hard, then go home to mummy and daddy by 9.00pm. For some reason there are also a whole bunch of boy-racers who also think that it's cool to show off how shit at driving they are in some ancient banger.
  • Pikeys.
  • gettin caught by the pigs and being beaten or chased by pikes
  • The pikes
  • nothing else to do
  • The traffic jams, apathy and ignorance of the towns people, and a strange desire to moan about things, especially "the youth".
  • God bogglers, bible bashers, churchies, Londoners who are moving in and pushing the house prices up even more. Clare Park and centre - muggers paradise..
  • So close to Burgess Hill. Shame.
  • I went out with a girl who lived near HH for a number of years and must say that the town and surrounding area was one of the most moribund and spirit-crushing places I have ever visited. Bullnecked, Ralph Lauren clad fools jostle with ageing & twisted Tories or city types for the title of true HH scum bag. Surrounding area is the kind of pretend countryside that convinces London émigrés they've beaten 'the rat-race' while managing to make every second farm building look like a centre for battery farming or cock-fighting. Sinister, unpleasant and with no relief from the bourgeois ideals of monotony and bad taste. In retrospect, she was a bit of a tw*t as well: cheers love!

  • CHARLENE LIVES THERE :(
  • Most things
  • I am convinced that Warden Park School should be top of this list. I was there in the late 1960s for a few years and absolutly hated it. I cannot imagine that it has improved any since. I feel sorry for all the kids there now. I escaped from Haywards Heath in 1971 and found that there is a real life outside of this introverted town.
  • The air they breath, the children they spawn, the stuff that comes out of both ends of them...which is worth more than them all
  • Nothing to do!
  • There's nothing to interest anyone under 45 in this town .
  • Inbreeders. They hold family get-togethers here so people can go meet members of the opposite sex. Also beware of the Old Bill
  • Inbreeders. The local cops have nothing better to do than whizz round town looking self-important and nickin' kids with pot. When it comes to REAL crimes happenin', the town soon becomes over-run with cops from other places and then the locals get pissy and put on a "Show-of-force" - or worse, drive around twice as often and in greater numbers and still end up nickin' kids that LOOK like they might know a pot-head or worse: appear to be unemployed!! (Apparently a HEINOUS crime in this part of inbreeder-central!!). Don't break down after 8pm ... the town is SHUT!!
  • I cannot think of a worse place to live than haywards heath. I lived there for a couple of years and contemplated suicide. I hate everyone from haywards heath. Especially the boy racers.
  • town council
  • The Platform Theatre has gone.
  • pigeons under the railway bridge
  • The place as a whole. The narrow-minded and ignorant residents,and the boy-racers in their crappy Astras.
  • everyone knows everyone
  • The worst thing about Haywards Heath is there is absolutely nowhere better to escape to inside of twenty miles (or more). The so hailed Brighton is also boring, dirty and of course slightly limp wristed. As for Crawley...
