Castleford is a little town in West Yorkshire.

This shitehole is called home by some 40,000 dregs of society, most of whom are blood related and don webbed feet due to the reduced genetic diversity that results from inbreeding (sleeping with ones sibling i.e Sister, Mother, Uncle, Dog, Goat etc).

The main method of transport in and around Castleford is the "push iron", known to everyone else as a bicycle. This mode of transport offers low enviromental impact and can be used by more than one person, simply stop someone riding a "Push Iron", and say "Na then, giz a krog", and voila!

Castleford is also home to the brand Burberry, infamous for it's quality line of "chav" clothing. If you visit Castleford, it will actually explain a lot about why most "chavs" wear burberry scarves around their faces. It is not to conceal their identity, no no, as most people who have been to this town will know, it absolutely stinks wherever you are, if you could imagine what the "Bog of Eternal Stench" in the film Labyrinth was like, i'm guessing it's not far off. The face scarf was designed to reduce the amount of awful odour settling in ones lungs, thus prolonging life!

Crime is also exceptionally high, mainly due to high poverty in the area, but also because when police run DNA tests, it comes back as a positive result for half of the population.

The best thing about Castleford is the M62. It allows you travel from Leeds to Hull without actually stepping foot in Castleford, or interacting with it's towns folk!
