Peak District moors open again

From the Peak Park website:

"Caution still urged on fire-risk moors in Peak District

Ramblers have been cleared to roam on Peak District moorlands once more – but constant vigilance against fires is still urged during the current hot spell.

The Peak District National Park Authority today (Mon Jul 24) lifted its suspension of access to open moorland after weekend rainfall slightly lowered the risk, but the situation is being kept under constant review.

All public rights of way have remained open throughout, and Ranger-guided walks are not affected this week, though three were cancelled at the weekend.

Co-ordinated teams from the Peak District Fire Operations Group have ensured that any fire-outbreaks so far have been contained.

The worst burned for 48 hours in underground peat on half a square-mile of Bleaklow, near Glossop. A helicopter dropped thousands of litres of water from nearby Woodhead reservoir and moorland streams supplied water for high-power jets last Thursday and Friday.

Other outbreaks have occurred on Black Hill, Rainow and Dovestones, and next to the National Park on moors around Stalybridge.

Head of access and recreation Sean Prendergast said: “We are still urging people to take caution on the moors, this doesn’t mean that they are safe – the moors are still susceptible to fire, and we’re appealing to people not to smoke, light naked flames or barbecues.”"
