Join us at the Old Oak Tree on the footpath at Bengeo Field alongside Wadesmill Road (B158) and Sacombe Road at 11 am. We will walk together to the Woodman Pub in Chapmore End arriving by midday. If walking is not your thing – meet us at the Woodman pub. There will be live music and BBQ at the Woodman between 12 – 4pm. There will be also some fun activities for children and adults along the walk and in the pub. Wear RED for Stop Bengeo Quarry Campaign and GREEN for our countryside (there will be a reward for best outfits).

Donations are welcome from walkers but are in no way compulsory. There will be Barbeque.
After the successful rejection of the previous proposal of the Bengeo quarry by County Development Control Committee, the Stop Bengeo Quarry is now preparing to the imminent appeal against this decision, as well as any other new quarry applications, and the expected consultation for Minerals Local Plan (and selection of “preferred arrears” for quarrying). Thanks to outstanding support from the local community we managed to achieve a lot. To give us the best chance of stopping the quarry in Bengeo Field and Rickneys’ for good, we need to raise funds for consultants and legal advice.
Let’s have a field day….
