Parish council's call to help preserve old quarry

Tintwistle Parish Council is looking for people to join a Friends of Holybank Quarry group.

The council own the once-worked quarry at the top of Old Road, Tintwistle, which is now only used by dog walkers and the occasional rock climber and is keen to preserve the land.

Late last year Cllrs Tony Owens and Marianne Stevenson invited Derbyshire Wildlife Trust to visit the land to advise on how it can be retained for nature conservation. 

Trust regional manager Dave Savage suggested signing up to a new initiative set up by the trust and become the first parish council to join the ‘Wild Peak Network’ - a movement of landowners and enthusiasts who want to improve biodiversity by managing their land a little differently.

Dave will may another visit to Holybank Quarry in the future to support the parish council in determining what they need to adopt to improve biodiversity in the area.
