Claim to fame: Denny will see roving reporter Angelica Bell travel north to report from the Carbuncle town to cover its two great claims to fame; its Carbuncle Award and its status as birthplace of all UK post boxes.
The segment will bring the Denny communities longstanding fight to bring about the demolition of a series of rundown town centre blocks to national attention following years of delay and obfuscation from Falkirk Council and developer Henry Boot.

The winner will be announced in the December issue of Urban Realm, published on December 12.
