    If Typhoo put the tea in Britain, who put the *unt in Scunthorpe.
    The only place twinned with itself.

    I had cause to walk through Grimsby a few months back.
    Oh dear.. it did look grim, although the bar we went to which was a docked ship I believe, was very nice.

    Holyhead .
    Folk going to the ferry just go straight to ferry terminal. Those coming off the ferry just want to get on with their journey. So no-one stops so shops can't make a living so close. Just empty shop after empty shop.

    The good thing is that you can get a fast train out in any direction.

    Paul Theroux's 'Kingdom By The Sea' is a good read. Just his observations and conclusions made of the
    British seaside town, thought provoking to get an outsiders viewpoint. Fair to say, his is a mainly negative one,
    with some exceptions naturally.

    I might be mistaken but even many British seem to hold the same negative outlook.
    I know a lot of seaside places seem to attract more numbers than might be expected of the financially deprived members
    of society. Not a lot of money to spend, areas get run down. Maybe if you're down on your luck it's a dream of a return to a happier time and place, when as a kid you would be taken to the seaside, could be part of the answer?
