List: Top Ten Biggest Blots on the British Landscape

Date: November 2003

Source: Country Life magazine readers poll

Base:

Notes: Amongst the worst of the buildings in the Basingstoke selection (No. 6 on our list) was, according to my local sources who do not wish to be named out of embarassment, the multi-storey car-park. However, it appears that the local council have got the hint since the Hampshire local government website has an update which says: "The appearance of the town has undergone drastic alteration, with major demolition operations sweeping away old-fashioned buildings and an entirely new town centre being built with pedestrian precincts and multi-storey car parks." So visit Basingstoke now for a whole new multi-storey car park experience!
