Update ... Finally talked to the main landfill Inspector , as much as he was helpful , he could only tell me what was going into opened landfills and Normanton Springs Landfill is closed , I now need to call a helpline for Environment Agencies :mad: 08708506506 ! and hope that they can give me the next path to take to find out what is in this closed Landfill, or what was allowed in this Landfill.

Trying to call them ! Havent given up yet !

Just talked to another Enviroment Rep.

The Ball is now moving !!!!!!! I have to email http://www.unitenquiries@environment-agency.gov.uk

Here I have to state all my concerns and my wanting to know what is in this Landfill.

I put the email address out for anyone else interested in wanting info etc..however the more emails and pressure given to this agency will certainly speed the ball bouncing.

finally I see some light !

Great, I only ever saw that event once, a truely awesome sight. I surely don't envy you the hurricane season. But as you say, living in paradise has its price. I hope that you are not affected too badly by this years hurricane season.

In reference to Normanton springs,before it became landfill during its mining era just as you come up Normanton hill on the left us four old pit houses I lived at No 7 with my grandparents,here's the layout as I can remember at the bottom of Linley lane was the quarry,just to the right of my Nans house was the railway which ran under Normanton Hill,then there was the brickyard,then there was the chemical factory then Birley west colliery,I too remember the shafts opening up in the early seventies and remember all sorts of bring dumped in them as to what it was I don't know.

About 1977 ish it became the landfill and continued for many years if you look up Birley collieryit will show you historic layout of Normanton springs and pin point where the chemical factory was,when I was a young boy I was told the gases omitted from the landfill would take years to burn off and you could see the blue gases being burnt off at the bottom of Linley Lane hope this helps
