That must be why we could only smell the kesp then Big grin
Just like us in Keresley End in the 60's, who put up with the crap from the Homefire plant so the rest of the country could 'go smokeless'!!!!

Hi Anne Wave I think this has been said on here before, but do you remember the morning where we awoke to find that we had received a shower of black soot every where? It covered everything including my new paintwork, which then needed re-painting. The Homefire Plant did settle our claim. Wave

I use to watch the fuel being tipped into the lorries from the shoot while waiting for my boyfriend to finish his shift who worked there and lived on the village, both my two sisters and I married Keresley village men, one of my sisters still lives on the village and has noticed since the closing of the homefire plant has gone, how cleaner it is inside her home, no thick dust any more .
