Moscar Moorland Closure Notice

We’ve received a closure notice via Natural England and the Moscar Estate in relation to open access land on Derwent, Bamford, Moscar and Hallam Moors. The closure notice restricts access under section 22 of the Countryside Rights of Way (CRoW) act. The extent and dates of the closure are shown on Natural England’s notice (Click here to view pdf).

The closure runs through May and June 2015 and is intended to minimise damage caused by trampling and disturbance to the ground-nesting birdlife during its most critical time. A similar closure took place last year.

This temporary closure does not affect Public Rights of Way.
