Stamford Bridge,YO41 1DL

03 Apr 2010

23:00

Today I was joined by Rob and Sue Hayward who volunteered to walk from Stamford Bridge up to High Catton, turn right to Low Catton and back to Stamford Bridge, collecting four very full bags of rubbish on route. I started down under the Viaduct and that's as far as I got. I've posted a couple of pictures showing the rubbish that must have accumulated over a number of years, (stopped counting tin cans after 70) and quickly realized I was in cloud cuckoo land if I thought I was going to finish collecting rubbish on the planned route! However, the weather was beautiful and I was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the kingfishers who were busy defending their territory prior to nesting. .

Mossley Hill
Having written to the council and asked them what they're doing about the litter in the area I thought this looked interesting. Not sure if there are any other people around Mossley Hill who aren't keen on the litter, particularly around Rose Lane but I wondered there might be enough people to do a group litter collection sometime. It's so nice to go out and find the street clean and tidy, it would be great if it happened more often.
