Yes i think you are correct hillbilly, also i don,t think the land owner is a victim of somebody else fly tipping. the only vehicle capable of tipping the waste so far into the wood is a tractor. spot the tractor parked by the entrance.

I saw a couple of contractors tractors with tipping trailors full of soil and rubble heading up that way last week, and they must have the owners consent cause there's a big chain with a combination lock on the gates.
A lot of the stuff has been there for years but the caravan that was burnt out the other week , all that security fencing which is probably hiding from its owner, the jeep and the old tractor appeared over the last 12 months or so, but the tipping of soil and rubble started in the last couple of weeks and is on going cause they went to the trouble of cutting back all the trees so it didn't damage their kit. I could take a wild guess as to where it's come from as well but I wont. Don't you need a license for tipping waste??

Thank you clashter for your observations, it's obvious to us the owner must have knowledge that waste is being dumped in the wood.( question ) do we know who owns the wood, and does he need a permit to dump waste. somebody must know, let's wait and see. But not too long.

A good few years ago I seem to recall that a man who works at the m.o.t garage on howden road was connected to the wood, don't know his name or if he still has an interest

I was working on an assignment mor my coursework in the woods 4 years ago. There was a little Grey Fergie parked over a stream, leading into the canal. The dashboard and stearing box had been removed. Any oil/hydraulic fluids will have drained straight into the canal!!

Given that the tin work was in good condition and spares are readily available, this would be a really good restoration project for someone.

A recent rubbish fire with spray cans could be connected to a garage owner.

Perhaps it would be helpful if anyone knows the correct channels / appropriate agency to post the name and contact details on this topic page.

Are the local councillors aware and could they help ?

How much longer will it be before there are other areas of Silsden looking like same disgusting mess !
The photos are a wonderful source of evidence to show to the right agency.

I stopped walking in those woods bout 2 years ago as encountered a couple of hostile looking men with rifles. There also looked to be a temporary shelter / dwelling near to the canal.

The owner of the land should be made accountable.

I`ve just been up there with the dog and there was a couple of blokes with a old W reg` silver twin cab pick up clearing up around where the caravans have been burnt out, probably clearing up the spray cans etc`.
I also walked up past where they`ve been tipping off the rubble, the good news is the Asbestos that you could see in the pictures has gone, the bad news is they`re now tipping off the rubble down the banking with no regard to the trees or environment probably a good 100 ton plus so far.
I`m pretty sure if someone was to ring the number on that security fencing the owners would be pleased to be reunited with it.
its time some thing was done about this and those responsible taken into hand and made to put this right.

i got the hunch bit. but like you true silsdeners i didn`t want to name names.
i saw 2 old silsdeners talking in the cemetery the other day about some off cumden fella, one was heard to say, "35 years that lads lived here and he wasn`t a bad sort after all" the other one was heard to say " I your right maybe we should`ve spoken to him before he died".

I am disgusted at this remark, and so should everyone else who reads it, but instead they all agree and take it as an acceptable comment! It just shows the childlike bullying nature of people who use this forum,
Name calling is pathetic at any age, but as an adult is just beyond belief. You should be ashamed of your comments! if you are not brave enough to say it to Neil's face, then don't say it.

It seems that peter is more than happy to close threads when the floodgate is in question...but comments like this are OK....MMMMM I do wonder

Bullying is something that shouldn't happen yes, so is dumping waste in a local beauty spot so if Neil would care to explain is actions on here I will be the first to appolagise for knowing who the remark was about.
