The Worst Things in Thatcham, Berkshire*

The entirely missable and worth mentioning because of it

You can tell us more about Thatcham.

The Worst Things
  • cant find out enough local history
  • The sezchuan Inn has got too big for it's boots and has forgotten how to look after it's customers.
  • High density housing with inadequate infrastructure. e.g. no pubs or community centres in the most heavily populated areas. Litter in coop carpark.
  • 80 minutes from Paddington.....
  • the fact that most of the older residents are so stuck up, having nothing to do, endless housing estates yet no entertainment, too quiet
  • Thatcham is the place that time forgot. A local town for local people (who are fat and wear straw hats)
  • they are bulding on all the green feilds around it.
  • There are none!
  • Long walk to railway station from most of Thatcham No real nightlife - nothing much for younger residents to do
  • Furthere down Lower way is the sewage works! Opposite some new flats. Which silly fools decided to build them there and which silly fools decided to buy them!
  • Kids hanging round out side Alldays. The smell of the Chinese van in the Broadway.
  • No decent shops, eg good bookstore, record store, games store...
  • It's always easy to get a mobile phone. I think this may be responsible for the generally poor taste in music around here.
  • Not being able to find the sign posts to the M4
