High Fire Risk

Please be aware that the risk of fire on Cleeve Common is especially high, due to the prolonged bout of dry weather.  Barbecues and fires are strictly prohibited anywhere on the Common (and always have been).

Fires are a real risk to the grassland and rare plants, wo wildlife, sheep and cattle and, potentially, neithbouring houses.  We don't want to end up with more areas like that in the photo or, even worse, with the Common looking like Saddleworth Moor.
