Old Northallerton U.D.C. refuse tip
Old Northallerton U.D.C. refuse tip
The field beyond the one in the foreground used to be a landfill site used by the urban district council for household and other refuse.
Some day this will be an archaeologists heaven.
I spent much time here during a summer job with the council in 1970.
As well as general household dustbin-collection waste we had:
a load of ex-rental TVs (from which I removed many components),
dead deer hit by vehicles on the A19,
a weekly load of animal parts and revolting stomach contents from the abattoir in The Applegarth
and tons of clinker from the ballast bed of the old wartime "austerity" railway line.
The latter was an attempt to reduce the fly population that was causing discomfort to the workers at the nearby new York Containers factory.
Happy days!
