What is an open cast site really like?

Noise! Dust!

I’m sure most of us don’t really know what an open cast site is like.

Well, take a look at his video.

And this one…

Both these videos were taken recently at the Lodge House, Smalley open cast site just north of Derby.

(there’s plenty more of these on YouTube…just search for ‘Lodge House opencast’)

I find these images truly horrendous. We must do all we can to get these open cast proposals stopped.

What do you think…leave your comments on the ‘Have your say’ page.
