Bat Roosts in Glossop

  • Print

Glossop is dripping with bat roosts, and most householders are totally unaware of the bats living above them. In five months Glossop Bat Group has recorded over 30 bat roosts, most of a considerable size. Some "roosts" consist of clusters of ten or more houses, all inhabited by bats. We are also aware of many more bat roosts that we consider to be vulnerable, and are currently documenting. There are probably hundreds of other roosts that we have not yet identified.

It is illegal to disturb bat roosts, even if the bats are not present. It is also illegal to block roost entrances or do other dastardly things to get rid of bats. If you think you have issues with bat roosts please contact Glossop Bat Group in confidence for advice and support.
