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. Nearest post code is OL2 8LS. Walk your way to health this year with Let’s Go For A Walk, an initiative launched by Oldham Council. Let’s Go For A Walk aims to encourage people to take those first steps to a healthy lifestyle. With free guided walks being held across Oldham’s fantastic parks and countryside sites, this new initiative is a great way to have fun and get active.
