As you're living in Manchester...
Do you mean Hoghton Quarry in Lancs? The one that has seasonal access from start of June to end of July?

Last year access was until the end of August - I've not heard that it's changed again. But at the moment it depends on the peregrine. There was word early in June that it hadn't fledged yet, but that there wasn't long to go...

But I've heard nothing from Les since. There are signs at the gate, but no doubt you want to know before you get there - if I hear anything, or if I'm passing and stop for a look, I'll let you know... Can't be long though.

RAD was updated today apparently - looks like it's open under the same access arrangements as the last couple of years.

That's timely. So "29th June - 25th August in 2013", but of course important to view the RAD for the full list of Access 'Do and Don'ts'

I just hope it is the Quarry that Stuart was after info on!

Yep, the Lancashire one. Cheers guys. I went to Denham instead this weekend, but I'm looking forward to checking out Houghton.

Have you got a partner lined up for Hoghton? If not I would be happy to check it out with you.
