Habitat and Landscape Workshop
This workshop will consider people’s views on, and how we might enhance, the conservation and ecological value of Crompton Moor. Coupled with this are the landscape qualities that provide the character of the Moor and how they influence its use. Such qualities include physical attributes (woods, quarries, streams/waterfalls, drystone walls etc.), historical/archaeological features, aesthetic qualities such as views into and out of the Moor etc.
Recreation and Activities Workshop
Here the group will focus on the present use of Crompton Moor and what sort of passive and active recreation might be accommodated in the future. Within this there will be opportunity to consider how different uses can be positively managed to allow inclusive use by the local community and those beyond in an attractive countryside setting.
Wednesday 20th May 12.30 - 3.30pm. Volunteer event.- Fencing Repair. Meet in main car park.
