I have, can smell it from Sandhills.
The smell will change though, it will no longer be the smell of sewage from the United Utilities water plant just up the road, it will be masked by the smell of success
I used to teach in Bootle...when I'd get off the train there was a mad smell sometimes, heard different stories about what it was:
- dog food factory
- whale bone processing (you know, because of all those Japanese whalers that work the Mersey)
- cereal processing for beer (I assume they meant Cain's, even though it's been dead a while now)
Not once did I hear the very sensible reason of a water plant!
I was kind of hoping when people were talking about a smell that they weren't talking about this, but oh well. For what it's worth, the smell wasn't permanent or anything....some mornings it was in the air, others not. Maybe it only occurs when the plant is undertaking a certain process? And maybe they can avoid doing it on a Friday night / Saturday or Sunday?
What do I know anyway, I was told it was fucking whale bones!
