Please share, especially if you live in or near Bolton, Lancashire.
This Idylic corridor, used by wildlife including DEER, FOXES, BIRDS, BATS and GREAT CRESTED NEWTS will be a landfill (tip) site if developers buy it on June 19th 2017.

Darcy Lever Railway Cutting

Save Darcy Lever Cutting from being turned into a landfill tip.

After last years successful objections by residents to the developers plans, the land is now in the hands of the receivers and is up for sale.


On the 19th June 2017,
The Cutting will be auctioned for an estimated £175,000.

We are proposing that the charity of Leverhulme Park purchases  ‘The Cutting’ to save the beautiful wildlife corridor.

We are also urging people to write a letter stating your objections and sending it to Mrs Asquith at the Town Hall. A sample letter will follow to give you an idea. but these need to be in your own words  and sent- ideally by registered post BEFORE the auction on 19th June.

The auction catalogue has arrived – Edward-Mellor-Jun17catalogue. The land at the cutting is Lot number 46.
