Hello, No as I now live in New Zealand but I can tell you, as a dog lover, that in the 1950s that entire pathway was known locally as Dog’s Paradise. You walked it at your own risk. There was dog poo everywhere along the length and it smelt of Dog Poo and stale wee. People did not pick up in those days as they do now. As a kid I used to pick The stems of Dandelions and blow the white furry bits away. God knows what went on my hands but I am still alive at 77. I guess those that gather and drink there just don’t care. Why do they gather?
well perhaps with the price of beer in pubs now, being what it is, it is cheaper to buy cans and drink with mates just off the main road and, even more so, if they are not welcome or banned from pubs.
Hi Calvin, Because they just do not care. Same as smokers chucking their butts on the floor or out of th3 windows of their car. Same as people dumping their Maccas rubbish anywhere or out the window of their car. It’s a malaise of self centred lack of consideration for others in society.
