Essex Reports

Basildon, Essex

Review of Basildon by bruce on January 2nd, 2011
what can I say about basildon......nothing complimentary.. I was there right from it's inception. and I just perceive a town built on STOLEN land without any consideration for the people of the area.. and having witnessed so many of the design and planning cock-ups.. I wonder if any of the bright sparks that did design the layout of the place ever actually LIVED in the dump.. or for that matter even even visited..

Review of Basildon by Will on June 10th, 2007
I lived in Basildon many years ago and loved every experience there was to be had. But like everywhere in the world there has to be a but! Like anywhere in the world you go to,there you will find the violence and dis-respect like all other so called Hard Towns or (Want To Bee's)However Bas is and always be the Best!
