I took this photo a couple of years back, out of sheer morbidity. As the letters on the side of the building indicate, this is a hotel. But no ordinary hotel. This is a Scunthorpe hotel and what is special about it, is that it perfectly captures the mood of the whole town. I swear to God that all my mental images of Scunthorpe are stored in my brain in various shades of grey. I remember thinking, when I took the snap, I really want to go in through the doors to reception and ask the girl if anyone actually stayed there. But Scunthorpe women are prone to acts of violence using glass objects, so I thought better of it.
Those in the know, please comment: which is the most unpleasant Lincolnshire town, Gainsborough or Scunthorpe?
