I spent a few hours at one of my favourite locations - Black Clough. Annoyingly people have decided it's a place to have picnic...but it's in the middle of nowhere so not designated a picnic spot and, as such, has no bins or collection service. Any sensible person would understand this and take their rubbish home, but oh no not these (insert four letter word)s
They are capable of taking 24 packs of lager down from the road on a fairly long walk from the car to this beauty spot, but they are not capable of taking back the empties - seen here in bags dumped under a rock.
Around the location I found half eaten strawberries (not a problem) but the plastic packet they came in and an empty carton of yoghurt was, cheep champagne bottle, water bottles, beer cans plastic bags. And, despite a sign saying no fires / barbecues, they've lit fires, close to trees to shelter and one directly under a tree which is now badly burnt.
How do we stop these idiots ruining our countryside?! I wish just for a day they could see what would happen if everyone did the same. I want them to walk through 6in deep rubbish so it ruins their shoes. I want the smell to penetrate their nostrils, and I want them to feel uncomfortable and as disappointed as I did when I saw this mess.
