Not safe to walk on Saddleworth Moor

3rd Jul 2018

Peak District Boundary Walk Stage 4

We have recently been advised that it is NOT safe to walk in the Arnfield / Ogden Clough / Chew area due to the on-going fire. North of Dovestone is fine so far.

The Public Rights of Way Officer asks us to stress to any prospective walkers that the moors are very dry and to ensure that they don’t do anything that risks an outbreak of fire (eg barbecues, stoves etc etc).

If you see a fire dial 999.
