The ///////// areas marked on this old map are where the old tip was. Slap, bang underneath the new 550 pupil and 78 babies nursery. In the late 1800s a brickyard was on the site with a brick kiln. Claypits were dug out to obtain clay for the bricks. Brickmaking was continued up until the 1950s and then the clay pits were filled in with rubbish. There was no record kept at that time of what was tipped as tipping wasn’t regulated. Some of the contamination found in the paltry four contamination pits they actually bothered to dig at the far end of the site to where the school was going showed Benzopyrene, which is a carcinogenic substance probably from the old brick kilns.
