Taking the tip for granted

Over the course of the last thirty years our local council refuse tip has become a glorious place to walk - or take a leisurely stroll as it now is with George.

Clyne refuse tip
It's very easy to take it for granted: saying 'I'm just going to walk George on the tip,' without thinking about how fortunate we are to have this wonderful amenity on our doorstep. Not only is it close it's flat enough for George.

Is it a slag heap or a rubbish tip? I remember something similar just at the edge of Glasgow when I was small ... full of bluebells and squirrels.

The old rubbish tip. Where the council dustmen dumped all the town's rubbish. It was closed just over thirty years ago.
