We were chatting about when Cromptons was opposite the S&S club and Millingfords was behind the houses on Rectory Rd and got on about the industrial pollutants(lathe coolants etc)that were spilled over the time that both operated.Millingfords used to have a tank at the back of the yard full of waste coolant which(allegedly)was run into the brook at the back,they would not get away with this now.Wondered if the land was totaly decontaminated or did they just remove the top layer of soil/dirt has there are houses on both sites now
