Today I joined campaigners from the Owlthorpe Fields Action Group for a wonderful walk around the area, not far from Crystal Peaks, threatened by the development of a massive new housing estate. I was bowled over by the amazing range of birds and insects- I have been to RSPB sites and seen less variety! Planning permission has been given for 2 more building sites, but the campaigners are still hopeful they can prevent further expansion onto the remaining sites. Please help them by signing the petition.
Here are Act Now performing at the beginning of the walk.
I spoke to Claire Baker (Chair of the Action Group) and Gary Monaghan (treasurer) about the campaign.
Some photos from the walk.
