A camp has been established near the site where Igas are planning to drill an exploratory well. It is at a layby just north of Barton Moss Secure Care Unit, Barton Moss Rd, Eccles, Manchester M30 7RL  (this is near Junction 11 of M60, right turn off Liverpool Rd on way to Irlam, signposted for heliport.)”

There are already at least three campers there, more expected shortly. They need:
