Doing a bit for wildlife locally, the Micklethwaite Toad Patrol rescued 61 toads from Micklethwaite Lane during the last week of March.  Toads make their way off the moor after hibernation to breed in the Canal, many getting squashed by vehicles on the Lane.

We are an officially registered patrol and anybody interested in joining us for 2022 please email Councillor Barton at
