The good old Historic market town of Saffron Walden has seriously gone downhill in the past few years.
Chavs now pretty much own the town after about 7 pm, swarming all over the place like a plaugue of burberry clad rats. In this lovely town, you will come across the most unoriginal people, idiots all wearing a parka, nike dunks or reeboks, a baseball cap with random american sports teams all over them, and drinking stella or for the ladies, blue WKD. The best place to “hang” is the common, where a group of 20 somethings with no lives drive their ‘cool’ ford fiestas and vauxhaull novas, and playing some guy “chatting” really loud with some generic drum n bass music in the background.
I had the good fortune of walking across the top of the common a few weeks ago when I was attacked and thoughroughly beaten by about twenty 15 year olds, simply because I “was wearing black.”
A regular patrol of chavs circle the common, their loud exhausts making clear that it is their territory.
In the dark of the common, where no lights can reach, many a strange occurance happens. Drug dealing is common in the dark, you are able to pick up very, very expensive drugs if you have a few hours to spare so you can wait. Saffron Walden is one of the most expensive places around to buy.
On entering parts of the town, you will be frequently asked for a “snout” which translates into ciggarette.
There are 4 roads which go around the common and the centre of the town, and beyond these roads is deemed the ‘safe zone’ where there are little chavs to encounter.
Apart from the swarms of chavs, there are the pub peoples. Popular pubs to go to are the White Horse, where it is suggested to learn self-defense or bring a knife if you want to go in. There is the Temeraire, where at points in the evening dozens of drunken chaps come out and harrass people. Many 14 and 15 year olds can purchase a pint at the “Lizzy” where the landlords dont care who they serve, this is the start of many a trouble.
There is so much wrong with this town it is unbelievable. I woukd write more, but you would all get bored
