Crompton Moor rises above the town of Shaw, near Oldham

It is unique locally in its diversity of wildlife, and has been designated a Site of Biological Importance (SBI) by the Greater Manchester Ecology Unit.

There is grassland, woodland, dry heath, wet bog and heather, and an impressive waterfall which flows into Pingot Quarry.

Friends of Crompton Moor hold regular events, activities and tasks involving the maintenance and enhancement of this rich environment.

If you enjoy the outdoors, and have an interest in wildlife, why not join us at one of our regular meetings . . .

2nd Monday of each month

7:30 pm until 9:00 pm

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 situation, regular meetings have been suspended for some time, and appear unlikely to restart anytime soon. [Sept 2020]
