WORST CITY - Merthyr Tydfil, Wales

Merthyr Tydfil, Wales

Population: 54,002

Worst Feature: Crime, poverty, and coal dust

Best Feature: The guy who designed the Evil Robots The Daleks in the Cult Classic “Dr Who” series came from there.

Like many former coal and steel towns worldwide, when the industry leaves the city suffers and Merthyr Tydfil in Wales is no exception.

Since the coals mines closed down decades ago and the last steel mill closed in the 1980’s, much like Pittsburgh in The States, Merthyr has been on a steady decline. Crime, poverty, unemployment and teen pregnancy are rampant, as is drug abuse.

They rank 5th in the country overall in education with only a fraction over 30% of the population with the equivalent of a high school education.

Life expectancy is also poor, due to the toxic legacy of the coal mining and steel industries, which has left more than 30% of the population suffering from some type of long term or debilitating illness.

Oh yes and they also could buy a vowel or two for their name.



Merthyr Tydfil - Wales - what more can be said?


 A rare sight in Merthyr Tydfil - a coal miner.

Many of the British territories, like Wales, tend to be in dreary locations. If you look at world maps of British territories, you can see that even throughout US history, the locations and nations have changed considerably.
