    In a field, directly opposite the entrance to the Western Downs estate (off A518 Newport Rd), there is a strange kind of blower / turbine thing atop a 15'-20' pole which seems to blow out smoke / steam (?) over the A518. Does anyone know what this thing is and what it's for please ? Thanks for any responses.

    They're seriously masking the odour with some kind of air freshener?!!

    Thanks for replies (thought you were having me on at first !)

    I can't imagine that it can be effective against acres of dung - even for an industrial size 'air freshener' - and, I wonder if the dung is less harmful than any chemical carcinogenic fall-out created by the 'freshener' ?

    The smell of human shits was again in the air as I drove down Newport Road today

    I had thought perhaps one of the election battle buses had just driven by

    I think there was another thread about the golf club site on ere but my search brought me back to the exploding cow

    Surely it cant still be smelling? Hasnt last summer's human excrement topsoil biodegraded by now? I think were gonna be in for another helping of shit particle sandwiches once it warms up again.

    Read the thread.

    An update on the action taken by the Environment Agency last year:
    Luddington Golf Ltd should have removed all their inappropriate wastes by 6th April 2015. 4 Recycling Ltd reported to the Environment Agency that they had removed their sewage sludge by December 19th 2014.

    Info taken from the EA website at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/stafford-castle-golf-course/stafford-castle-golf-course - if the smells are still coming from the new golf course, and not from muck spreading as suggested by bpelectric above, then you can report the fact to the Environment Agency on that webpage.

    Im sure everyone involved will have been duly punished appropriately

    Or said sorry and made a lot of money

    If they are Conservatives
