Fire on Marsden Moor

Standedge Road is a regular route on our cycle rides but today we gave it a miss as eleven crews from West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service were trying to control a fire covering about 3 sq km of land.
The fire on Marsden Moor is believed to have been started by a barbecue at Easter Gate, the National Trust said.
