Winter Hill – where to stay away from

With more fine weather to come over the next few days and into the weekend, Bolton Mountain Rescue Team has provided this map showing the areas that have been affected by the fire and where we need people to stay away from.

The red area is a fire ground. This cordon is not only for public safety but it will ensure that you don’t get in the way of emergency responders, to enable them to maintain the progress we’ve made so far. It will also help us return full access to the area to you as soon as possible.

Road closures are in place for the public’s safety and to help our crews do their job. Please help us, by strictly observing road closures, whether you’re a driver, cyclist or on foot.

People travelling to the scene, blocking access roads for emergency vehicles and flying drones hamper our response and compromise safety.
