Mucking Tip
2012 update: This is Mucking Tip a vast landfill site that took Londonís rubbish, much of it arrived by barge and was unloaded at TQ6980 : Travelling Crane at Mucking Tip. The photo was taken from the boundary fence by a footpath that runs from near the railway station in East Tilbury.

Now much of the tip is capped off and more is being restored, waste is now shipped to
TQ4980 : Riverside Resource Recovery Facility . The first 250 acres of the tip are now being managed by Essex Wildlife Trust, it is their biggest project ever however they raised £100,000 from the public and members to generate £2.8m in matching funding from other sources.
