"Bad old days in Mourne" from david kirk Expand pics
Bad old days in Mourne (Expand pics)
Sorry, I seem to have been a bit hard on the good Padodes over the removal of his/her mountain of rubbish - didn't realise it was a mega-pile, the result of years of garbage-vandalism - certainly not a job for one person. We had a similar problem some years ago in the Mournes where the army had to be recruited to helicopter out abandoned cars, bits of tractors and a spread of other disgusting stuff - abandoned it must be said, not by walkers but by 'locals' - from Piece's Bog, one of the most atmospheric places in the area. This could be the answer to Wicklore's pictureof the rusty car. Military finances permitting, with a bit of sweet talking the removal of such things could be used as a training exercise for helicopter crews.
In the Mournes also there is an annual 'clean-up' organised with school-kids provided with bin-bags and sent to scour the most popular routes under supervision.
But at the end of the day, for every goon who leaves litter, there are a hundred who abhor it, and if they just leave a bit of space in their sacs and lift and take away anything they come across, litter need never be left to lie there for more than a few days.
On another topic, Big-Foot's suggestion that parking at the Silent Valley is a good base for walking the the Mourne Wall, it is an excellent location but I think you need special permission from the Water Service to park overnight - certainly this was the case some years ago. Although our troubles seem to be over, there is still nervousness regarding such strategic facilities as Belfast's water supply!
