Sorby NHS (Sheffield) - Crowden Great Brook - MEETING CANCELLED

30th June 2018, 10:30

Event Description:

Because of the major fire on Saddleworth Moor it has been decided to cancel
Saturday's (Sat 30th June) lichen meeting to Crowden Great Brook.

The fire, which is still spreading, is on an area contiguous with the moor above Crowden and it is most likely that Open Access in that area will be closed.

Sorby NHS (Sheffield) - Lichen meeting to Crowden Great Brook

Leader: Steve Price (email: lichenrecords@sorby.org.uk)

We will spend the day in the upland valley of Crowden Great Brook looking at gritstone outcrops, boulders and moorland areas. Some of these are high up on the valley side and it will be rough underfoot to gain access to them.

Meet at 10.30am at grid ref SK072992. This is the Peak District National Park Crowden car park just off the A628 Woodhead Road. This is about 8.5 miles west of the Flouch roundabout and 3.5 miles east of Tinstwistle. There are toilets here and at the time of writing there is no charge for parking.

As usual people with all levels of experience are welcome. Strong footwear and waterproof clothing are recommended. Bring a hand-lens, lunch and drinks.
