Cole Green Tip (WGC5/BGS) Old Photos
The photographs in this gallery show the former landfill operations on the site proposed for development as part of the Birchall Garden Suburb scheme being promoted by Tarmac to Welwyn Hatfield and East Herts councils. They were supplied to us free to use under the terms of the public sector information license, under the Open Government Licence v3.0. You can find the licence terms here.
These photographs depict the scale of operations at the site. The Society document "What Lies Beneath V2.0" contains more information about the photographs and 70 years history of landfill rubbish disposal on the site. The site accepted many types of waste from London and surrounds.
