TWO OXFORDSHIRE towns have been named as some of the worst places to live in England.

Didcot ranked as the 11th worst place to live in the country according to a new survey by the satirical website iLiveHere.

Last year the town ranked 44th on the list, and so this year has climbed more than 33 places – one person, who lives in the town, described it as ‘a railway siding dressed up as a real portal to hell’.

It was not the only town in Oxfordshire, however, to make the list.
Abingdon ranked the 23rd worse place to live in England, which one voter described as ‘Oxford’s ugly aggressive little brother that may stab you’.

The survey, which is conducted annually, took a poll of 110,172 people, who voted where the top 50 worst places to live in the country were.

Abingdon and Didcot were ranked higher than Swindon, which was said to be the 31st worst town in England.

Aylesbury has been crowned the worst place to live in the UK, shortly followed by Huddersfield, Luton and Liverpool.
