I failed to mention yesterday about the recycling opportunities there are along the Birmingham and Fazeley and the Grand Union. You could build a couple of dozen Spitfires from the number of beer and cider cans dumped along the towpath. It cannot be beyond the wit of man to come up with an incentive to stop this behaviour surely; how about instant death for anyone suspected of dumping their tinny?
I was also shocked and dismayed (you naive sheltered little twit Lesley) by the huge level of fly tipping along the canal cuttings, I cannot grasp the mentality of the people that are prepared to dispoil their town in this way. The BW Towpath Tidy in the first two weeks of March needs to bring in an army of volunteers to tackle the mess on this stretch of cut - shame.
Enroute we passed this. The 'Birmingham Energy Recovery Facility' - an incinerator to the likes of me.
