I've noticed maybe once a month the air over where I live smells odd, like marmite. It is usually noticable more at night and I have had to resort to shutting my windows cos I can't sleep with the smell. Having just got back from shopping at Bidston Tesco, I noticed the same smell in the car park. Anyone know what it is? Is it something coming from the docks perhaps? Don't say it's me lol, I've already read the thread on farting !! grin

I shop mostly at asda on the woody and have noticed a similar pong from time to time but thought maybe the fields opposite were `being spread`, (with fertilizer not marmite).

It's the same smell that you get most days on M56 by Helsby. I noticed it near J3 M53 a few weeks ago - I guessed the wind was blowing it across but I don't know

That will ince fertilizer plant, they make those little white drops for spreading on the fields at this time of year where it can steadily seap back into the fields. If it is put down before a heavy rain storm they can be washed off and end up in places like the birket fender etc.

If your at bidston its probable the molasses sugar plant over at the end of the docks.
Part of the plant has talo which is animal render that is boiled up to make a thick sludge that stinks..

not unlike marmite !!

Muck spreading round here too at the moment, phooooooeeee!
It all depends on the wind direction, we find. Used to go up Killingholme and it hums up there too with the chemical and petrol processing plants giving it rooty toot. Just part of modern living. Be thankful we are not near that Indian place (Bopal?) where it crocked everyone.
