the other extreme essex accent is the rural one that loads of people would probably think was suffolk. i don't have it myself but come across it with my mums side of the family. my dad (a native londoner until he was 10) apparently couldnt understand my great grandad most of the time lol!
i have to say i cannot stand the south essex accent - it makes me cringe so much! thats one of several reasons that i avoid basildon like the plague!

in response to someone earlier - chelmsford's not that bad. you can't expect much more for it's size. its got a few decent bars & shops. i don't live there though, so perhaps i can't judge it properely.

its not, i live in colchester there is lots to do
and he doesn't lie

Colchester's also a bit different to most of Essex. Not everyone here has that stupid damned Essex accent, it's a bit more ruralish. Not as bad as the Suffolk farmer accent.

Heh, I'm moving to Colchester in a couple of weeks. I'm from Essex anyway so I'm used to the dodgy accents..but I'd say Colchester's quite decent.

I think that factor is over emphasised. I currently work up town and you don't exactly see loads of squaddies roaming around Colchester. Most of them lead normal lives when not training or doing whatever.

I agree - it's alot different to what people think the normal Essex accent is like. I hate the Essex accent (especially SOME of the women) which people down in the South of the County have. :rolleyes:

Essex is the UK's best kept secret, and I think the only reason its got such bad rep is because everyone else is jealous of the quality of lifestyle in the county
Suffolk is far lovelier, we are all farmers. It's a nice location, and there's some gorgeous countryside - the majority of East Anglia is like it. Some parts of Essex are gorgeous if not a bit small. Avoid Braintree. Manningtree is v dull.

Hehe that's where I'm from...but believe me I do try hard not to speak like that! The worst thing is when you see some bleach-blonde in a mini skirt and white stilletos shouting something about 'saaaahhhfffend' and you realise the stereotype is true! =/

In terms of East Anglia Colcheter isn't that bad..

Living in Thetford I can vouch for that, and avoid Haverhill too :rolleyes:

Think nothing of the stereotypes in Essex, it all becomes normal.
