Saddleworth Moor in Northern England has been burning for the last 4 days, due to very high temperatures and drought conditiions.

Very sad this episode is, i just wanted to post a couple of photographs which i think are stunning.

Firstly, a home completely encased by burnt moorland, whilst the fire still rages in the background.



This one is fire and moon.

BBC are reporting that the army has been called in by the fire service to help with the fight , I think this as bad news for those who live and work on the moor but good for the moor itself.

Nice pictures

Are the moors mostly organic as opposed to mineral based soil? If so, these fires have the potential to continue to burn blow ground for years.

With the amount of bodies buried in them probably yes

Very sad indeed, lets hope that they get a handle on it soon. Like Gortex said at least this could benefit the moor in the long run and spur new growth, so maybe a little silver lining.

Lol, same in the moors down my way.
I was up there a couple of times not so many months ago, beautiful scenery. They will recover with new growth, I'm just pleased nobody has been hurt or killed.

It must be teming with bodies, all the millions who live on the edge of the Pennines over hundreds of years and loads of Brady's who we will never even know of in the past.

Totally agree it's a wonderful place, especially at 3am in the morning post rave

LMAO, my rave moors are a mixture of Bodmin, Exmoor, and Dartmoor, nothing like seeing the sun come up in a beautiful place.
...plenty of people buried in our moors as well, but if you're lucky you just get a savage beating and dumped naked with a hood over your head. Moors hold many secrets in the UK.

If you ever visit the UK I'd say go see Saddleworth moors. I've driven through it a couple of times in the last year, had never been before, absolutely stunning scenery. I bet it is bleak in the winter though.

I've been in West Lancashire today and could smell the smoke all morning from 40 miles away.

It used to be a grouse shooting area so the brush was kept down, its not that unusual for fires to start per se but the gaffer remembers her bapu coming in from a fire in Cyrpus and lets just say its wasn't just a quick wash at the sink so all hail to the fire fighters.

Don't stray off the path on t' moors.

As nasty as this one is, the one wildfire no one wants is the one that could hit the forests in and around the Chernobyl area. There's lots of contaminated leave litter there that won't decay because of the high radioactivity.

So imagine a fire like that one only spewing radioactive ash all over.

Well if you ever do, maybe just see a few sights in London for a couple of days then get out of ther fast. Places like the SW of England (my parts) are beautiful, with friendly people and low crime. You'll find the classic English countryside scene, from coastal to moorland.
On-topic, the North, and places like Saddleworth moors are lovely as well, again, really friendly people.
London is a cess pit.
