"It`s A Tip" Throckmorton Warnings Or Dangers Tip by DUNK67

Throckmorton Warnings and Dangers: 1 reviews and 0 photos

Throckmorton is home to an old World War 2 airfield, part of it now however is used as a tip for houseold and general waste. During the Summer especial thousands of flies hover around the tip and find their way to some of the neighbouring villages much to the disgust of the locals.

Throckmorton Airfield was also used as a burial site for the carcasses during the BSE crisis and was even mooted as a site for a camp for Illegal Immigrants.
