    Is it weed tea? Saying that, Sneinton isn't that bad for an inner city.

    Yes the female custody Sergeant at Sneinton nick has a heart of gold!

    I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism

    Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.

    The one at Carlton wasn't bad either.

    I wouldn't feel unsafe walking around there. But in somewhere like St Anns, Meadows, Radford, I would perhaps maybe not even drive through...

    I've found myself in the Meadows a few times and didn't actually think it was that bad. Put it like this, I've been in much worse at home.

    I was very fond of Radford when I lived in Notts, myself. If I ever move back, it will definitely be on my list.

    I've observed it going downhill quite quickly really. I went to school near there, and actually felt perfectly safe then, last time I drove through on the A610 into town a few weeks back (don't live that way, so it's not normally a way I's go) it just felt like something was about to kick off and that the atmosphere was comfortable for those around, as though this was common.

    As for another comment about the Meadows, at least that keeps itself contained, as it's surrounded by Meadows Way and the river, and just outside, the A60/A6008/A453, and then out of that is the cattle market/station/industrial areas. It kind of keeps it within itself as there's no neighbouring areas and little need to go in unless you are. St Anns is a bit similar in that you would usually drive around it (e.g. Carlton Rd, Porchester Rd, Woodborough Rd, Mapperley Rd, Mansfield Rd/Huntingdon St) and don't have much need to pass through it, though the Wells Rd is in principle a decent alternative to main roads and it has more junction points with the outside world.

    Fair point I suppose. Or indeed an inner city area with real issues - probably a fair amount of London fits that.

    Fair point. I guess I've often lived in areas of London that a lot of folks wouldn't fancy - Streatham, Brixton, Tottenham - but it's incredible how quickly some places change once gentrification takes hold - a lot pf people and businesses get displaced. I've little to no knowledge of Notts in 20 years, though. All my mates who used to live in the centre have since moved to the outskirts.

    Not sure why you would say that. I drove through Radford this afternoon, it is a typical high immigrant area but I wouldn't have a problem walking through there at all. The old part of the Meadows is very clean and the streets are not anything to worry about at all, for the most part good people. St Anns has a good community these days.
    I just don't understand why you would be frightened in these places.

    I did 2 tours of NI in the mid 70's (army) met some great people but it was truly a scary place at that time.

    Absolutely no idea why, I've lived in 2/3 of those and happily walked round the other.

    I think when you are used to areas in question you just become numb to issues. Sometimes when you aren’t the fear of the unknown gets to people. Places are different on a night too. There aren’t many places in Hull I’d not walk in the day (some secluded cut throughs I’d be wary of) but wouldn’t go out my way to venture on a night. As others have said London is a different matter though. But is that fear of the unknown?

    These places that 'keep themselves contained' and folk like yourself can usually avoid in your cars, well, people live there. And good people at that, despite the poor conditions and shitty facilities

    You talk about them as lists of A road numbers and zoned off areas. Maybe get out your car next time and take a look about? I was born and raised in Radford/Hyson Green and went to school in Forest Fields and as a total generalisation would take the people from inner city areas like St annes/Radford or the Meadows over the people of West Bridgford where I 'luckily' ended up every time.

    Some interesting comments here.

    I worked from a base in the Meadows for twenty years, previously from west Bridgford. Never noticed any difference between them.

    Since retirement I have lived in South Armagh. Great people and beautiful scenery, all mountains and little lakes.

    Take people and places as you find them. Pay no attention to reputations.

    Judging by the usual CG atmosphere, most of them are.

    I dislike most people. I want to move to the Vale of Belvoir but cannot afford it and there is ropey broadband.
