A long night was spent ensuring the safety of the camp, in 100mph winds. Unfortunately, the Tech Tent / Tea Tent was lost to the elements. This was the communal tent where people spent time away from the wind and rain, while still being able to see onto the path.
At 0830hours, the Barton Moss Protectors were able to stop the iGas trucks from using and damaging the Barton Moss “Road” Public Footpath.
