    I see that Japanese Knotweed is growing down near the Railway Line on Little Hobmoor, is this part of ‘Friends of Hobmoor’ It really needs to be got rid of quickly its not a large area and it is both very intrusive and not indiginous

    Hello. Just a quick question. I was walking on the Moor this evening between 5 and 630 pm , near the railway underpass. There was an exceptionally tall, slim man in roughly his late forties, dark haired and wearing a red and blue checked shirt who appeared to be loitering around myself and another young woman with long blonde hair and two springer spaniel type dogs. Something about him made me very uneasy. Has anybody else been worried by this individual and is it generally safe for women to walk their dogs on the Moor?

    A older neighbour of mine has a wish to hear a skylark singing – it’s on her bucket list of things to do! What are the chances of hearing a skylark singing in flight at Hob Moor? Is there a best time of day?

    Hi. Someone pointed out a large weed growing on the far side of the beck by the Hob Moor School gate. I think it might be Giant Hogweed…
