The Acid Tar Pit, Cinderhill, Derbyshire. Progress.

The same View as 2018 in February 2020 showing the tar pit has now become an ecosystem rather than a blank inhospitable area. Before we started on this site no living creature could exist on its surface. When it rained the water became so acid that snails died and their shells melted. Frogs disintegrated and no mammal crossed it.

Today frogs and newts are resident, good snail colonies can be monitored across the site and when the rain falls there is no acidic run off. Earth worms are found burrowing into the top layers of the surface.

There will be a full progress report coming very shortly to the website. It will contain news that will benefit site across the UK, Europe and other parts of the world.
