turning its back on the sewage works & road noise, privacy from industrial units from the nearby trees & bushes, as far away from smells from sewage works as possible within site confines
tremorfa aerial view - 1:2500
the site is surrounded by heavy & light industry,
and is dominated by the sewage treatment works to the north.
it does benefit from fantastic views across the
severn estuary & a clear aspect to the south
