Visit 1960s Basildon-new-Town.

Recommended Posts

hereAnyone with access to a time machine could do worse than visit Basildon in its 1960s pomp. originally built in the early forties, by 1965 it had aquried that sort after " Grey, with yellow streaks concrete" look, so beloved of British town hall beaurocrats up, and down this fine country.

Yes, for all your 1960s holiday needs its 1960s Basildon-new-town every time.

And here is the present day view, complete with some charming local intellectuals. Proof positive of the benefits new concrete wastelands have visisted upon Albion.

The government's decision to build New Towns rather than restore cities also resulted in Glenrothes in Scotland (another holiday destination.) The houses are identical to Basildon's. I must be careful what I say because my wife came from Basildon: she still takes Sharon and Tracey shopping there.
