I was watching a programme about the Leeds-Liverpool canal with Tony Robinson walking from Liverpool

to Parbold.Liverpool used to export it's ' night soil ' by barge for the West Lancs farmers to spread on the

fields.There was a picture of the sewage being hand barrowed off next to the 'Ring o Bells' pub.

Strong stomachs, the chances of a nasty accident looked fairly high.

Respect to people who are in that line of work .

seesm like last chance this week to see the FATBERG at the Museum of London until July 1st

seems like it is getting more grotesque

"The lump of congealed fat, oil and wet wipes has begun to "sweat" and change colour - and flies have hatched in it."

Perfectly disgusting, a huge fatberg has been found in Sidmouth Devon reports the Grauniad
How did it migrate from London? :?
Cycling-of course, but it is far better on a Gillott
We love safety cameras & STOP signs
