Making hay in Quarry Field

Quarry Field is through the trees above Snuff Mills car park. Each year the Council allows much of the grass to grow long for the summer. This is because it attracts many insects that are food for birds and rare bats.

The grass gets cut in summer and tractors come and make hay from it. Some people have complained about the long grass, but Snuff Mills Action Group has arranged for a central area to always be kept short so people can play football in the field.
