Another twist to the sanitation situation saga is that there is a disused sewage works in the village.
Yet another twist, hitting the pockets of villagers - they have to pay the new increased sewage rates.
"Why should we?" asked Mrs Beryl Warde, of Smithy Cottage, who helps to run a cat breeding centre.
"We don't get the service, so we shouldn't have to pay the cost. I am not sure how much we'd have to pay, but it must be too much for the treatment we've been given."
And her neighbour, Mrs Winifred Cockle, of Chantry Cottage, explained: "The smell in the village is terrible sometimes.
"I am surprised there isn't more disease and illness in the village.
"Sometimes, after rain, you have to pick your way through the streets - it's all slimy and smells vile."
