Beddington Farmlands- it stinks
The wind must be have an east componet to it. The catch with living on an emerging urban nature reserve is that it is emerging from the restoration of a landfill site and sewage farm which doesn't always smell too clever. On nights like tonight it absolutely honks. There is a blinking pump going 24/7, draining out the Northern lake for the restoration that not only sings me to sleep but is also draining the water revealing the sediment which smells too- adding a new liquer to the cocktail of smells. Only 12 years to wait for the reserve.
