THERE'S a place in Huddersfield meant to be a pleasant area where you can linger.
But university law lecturer Terry Norris says it is a particularly nasty grot spot that is so bad it puts him off his lunch.
He used to sometimes eat his sandwiches at Aspley Wharf, off Wakefield Road, where the Huddersfield Narrow Canal meets up with the Broad Canal.
But the seats have been set on fire and notice boards giving information about the canal have been covered in graffiti.
The place is also strewn with litter.
It's the latest site pointed out by readers after the launch of the Examiner's Clean Up the Town campaign.
Mr Norris said: "It's a terrible grot spot.
"If I ate my lunch there now I'd have trouble keeping it down."
A postman has highlighted the spots that bug him.
Michael Hill, who lives in Crosland Moor, said: "I'm in town at 4.30am, and if you saw the rubbish at that time you'd disown half the people of Huddersfield."
He said no-one ever seemed to sweep under the seats in the town centre piazza.
"There's rubbish piled up under them," he said.
Mr Hill also pointed to St Peter's Gardens as an area where there appeared to be little sweeping done.
The Examiner launched its campaign after Huddersfield was forced to pull out of the Yorkshire in Bloom contest.
The town centre was judged a loser because of its litter, graffiti and neglected floral features.
Lindley shopkeeper Laurie Hopkins said he was appalled at the amount of takeaway rubbish on Trinity Street.
He said he walked from Lindley to St Patrick's Centre on Trinity Street every Sunday.
He said: "There is a massive amount of litter. There are takeaways all over, opposite the bus stop, but there are no bins.
"You would think that takeaways would be happy to provide bins."
