I'm sure I never used to notice so many sewage smells when I lived in Stoke-Newington/Stamford Hill and Camberwell. Is this just because se1 is such an old part of London or is it that being more built up means there's more 'matter' to dispose of? Maybe I'm just getting over sensitive but I even think it's got worse in the eight years I've been here.
I'm really looking forward to the Shard. I really like it but I do wonder about all that falling used food.
Anyone else noticed a difference or can tell me I'm imagining it?
Now and again there is a whiff Beetroot, a few weeks back there was a revolting smell carried over the Channel from a pig farmer spreading pig poop..
By any chance do your suffer from catarrh? my sister used to and always complained about a pong!
Nope, no catarrh.
The stinks I'm talking about are contained in quite small areas, maybe only fifteen metres, and friends that live in other parts of London comment on them when we pass through. It's not a general pong. There's a regular occurrance near the Southwark Tavern.
This happens all over London. Parts of the City absolutely hum, and I went for a stroll in Wapping/Limehouse at the weekend, and in some parts you could barely breathe! It's not really surprising if most of our sewers are still Bazalgette's...
