Crompton Moor from the main Car Park
Goto Scheme Oldham - Let's Go For A Walk
Join Anita for a walk on Crompton Moor.
Crompton Moor rises above the town of Shaw, and is a unique and popular recreation site in Oldham.
The site is great for wildlife. Birdwatchers can see kestrel, red grouse, golden plover, snipe, curlew, skylark and meadow pipit. There are also foxes, weasels, common shrews, stoats and hares.
There are various habitats on the moor which support this rich wildlife. There is grassland, woodland, dry heath, wet bog and heather, and an impressive waterfall which flows into Pingot Quarry.
Crompton Moor has also been designated a Site of Biological Importance (SBI) by the Greater Manchester Ecology Unit.
The car park is at Brushes Clough Quarry off Buckstones Road.
