    The first development on the site was the Clay Pit workings and production of bricks by W.T.Wrights, it remained in production till shortly after the Second World War. In the early 1950s, with the site overgrown, and the Pits now being used by anglers, a proposal was put forward by the Rural District Council for that area to use the land for landfill. The Parish Council, supported by local Householders opposed this. A petition with over 1400 signatures was handed in, but their views were ignored and the scheme went ahead. Some time
    later the site opened, although supposedly on a temporary basis. In the late 1960s or early 1970s the site was transformed into an incinerator plant, and a tall chimney dominated the area. The official opening was attended by Noel Gordon of 'Crossroads' fame. The Incinerator Plant was closed down some years later, possibly due to high running costs. The chimney remained for some years, until it was eventually demolished. The site remained as a tip for some time, being closed a few years ago when a new site opened at a different location.
