The Worst Things in Mitcham, Greater London*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Mitcham.

The Worst Things
  • Pollards Hill estate worst estate full of gangs always a stabbing or someone being shot robbed pikeys and blacks two sides to it
  • Surely no town in the country has descended so far into the depths as Mitcham. I'm ashamed to admit that I grew up there - in the 1960s when it was civilised.
  • 76-year-old man attacked in Mitcham after confronting group who were trying to kick his dog (8.3.2015,'The attack took place on the field in Cricket Green, Mitcham, on Friday, March 6 at roughly 4pm.The two men and two women are all described as black and in their 20s. The man who pushed the pensioner is approximately 5ft 11ins tall with short black hair.'
  • Transport links.
  • It's social diversity which in reality is a volatile mix of chavs and immigrants.
  • That the big trees are under threat near the fire station.
  • the locals
  • Town cenre is dying - it's just a roundabout. Not once decent pub. Not one decent place to eat. Abbey Mills.
  • Donnelly green by pollard's hill estate. Massive gangs of youths wearing all the latest sportswear causing trouble and vandalising everything or body in sight.
  • Donnelly green by pollard's hill estate. Massive gangs of youths wearing all the latest sportswear causing trouble and vandalising everything or body in sight.
  • The vile scuzzy low-life that live here. The foul run-down 'centre' with its guts ripped out due to council 'planning'. The lack of a railway station anywhere nearby, the traffic jams making even a departure by road difficult.
  • People getting shot at all over the place. Someone getting killed in the kiddies park near where my nephews live. Someone getting killed in the Hop Pickers. The local gangsters and their feuds.
  • Pikeys everywhere and dirty mitcham birds with their "croydon facelifts" and seven kids.
  • The traffic.
  • its just dry, small pass through town
  • living here for 32 years
  • Minority of low grade trashy people
