Another fire has taken hold on Marsden Moor and caused Millions of pounds in Damage, future restoration work, 1000's of animals have died and 100's of Fire Crew, Police, Mountain Rescue, and National Trust volunteers are risking their lives to keep this at bay.

The person responsible on this occasion was setting off an industrial firework on the moor (during lambing & nesting season). 

This happens every year and with covid 19 causing more people to flood to the area, we are finding more disposable BBQ remains, cigarette butts, and other dangerous materials that can cause such awful devastation. The deterrent for this behaviour is not enough. As a community, we are collectively devastated by our surroundings and wildlife being abused this way and would like to see much harsher penalties and policing of this issue nationwide in open moorland.
