Hoghton access has been suspended until further notice. Unauthorised access will undoubtedly damage any prospect of a favourable resolution to the current restriction. The previous coded lock has been replaced with a keyed lock.
Dates: 2 July to 29 August
Reason: Nesting Birds
The restriction applies to the whole quarry and the progress of the birds will be monitored with restriction dates reviewed if the birds fledge early.
2021 update - The peregrines were successful at Hoghton and have three chicks.
