    Default Is Grimsby such a bad place to be?

    grimsby piccie

    Cheap place to live. Next to the sea. Close to wide open spaces (Lincolnshire).

    Oh, and great fish n chips!

    Nope I'm from Manchester. Steels is a good fish restaurant up the road in Cleethorpes. Not really an area I recommnd to be quite honest though.

    Southern wuss

    Our fishmonger delivers to our door and comes from Grimsby. Jolly nice chap too.

    Gosh.

    I remember when we had a fishmonger who delivered to the door... he had a Morris 1000 van.

    My Dad worked there in the 60s. Grim Grimsby was how he and his colleagues described it. Arsehole of the Universe was another epithet.
