The Sutton Wick landfill site has been filled and landscaped and there is a footpath from Peep-o-Day Lane across to Drayton over the site.
Trees have been planted.
There is also a lake with an island at the centre
where birds are at home.
Lorries no longer come this way from the Drayton Road to the landfill site. The remote area just south of Abingdon is being left for nature to reclaim in a managed way.
In one corner of the site there is evidence that Cemex, the multinational company who took over the company that originally extracted gravel from this site, are generating electricity from the methane produced by our old waste.
Cemex work with RSPB on a number of old landfill sites.
