- Gainsborough is grim.
i work there 😀
and yes, its pretty grim. and yes, bostons bad as well 🙂 its a shame really as gainsbro’s got a great history, involving henry VIII, vikings, sweyn forkbeard, king canute tried to turn back the waves of the trent apparently (the eiger, which again is pretty impressive).
apparently a few decades ago they stuck all the undesirables from other towns there and rumour has it they interbred a fair bit. certainly i believe its got one of the highest amounts of child abuse/paedophilia cases in the uk.
i thought i was being a bit ‘un-pc’ (probably am) thinking that a lot of the people there just look ‘wrong’ to me. hard to put my finger on it but other people say the same thing too.
ive only worked there a couple of years, but it always had a real bad name for violence and crime. its sposed to be better these days, and going to get a fair bit of investment, but yes, right now its a horrible place.Posted 5 years agosadexpunkSubscriber

we’ve seen some right places on our house visits. animal sh*t on the carpets, ferrets running round the house, ex-gypsies keeping donkeys upstairs 😀Posted 5 years ago
they even had to knock a street down as the occupants just vandalised the houses so much.elzorilloMember
Gainsborough is no different to any other town in the region.. goole, scunny, retford, worksop, mansfield, louth, M.Rasen.. each and every one of them left high and dry in the 80’s and have stagnated since. Zero employment initiative together with loads of cheap residential new builds have generated a massive buy to let market, dragging whole areas down in the process.
Strange that Gainsborough was the one mentioned as a dump though because thats the one considered to have had the most spent on it recently and is the only one listed above that has actually got better rather than worse..Posted 5 years ago
