Fire crews tackle Whaley Bridge building blaze


Fire crews from Buxton, Chapel-en-le-Frith and Whaley Bridge were called to a building fire in Whaley Bridge on Friday evening.

The incident, which happened shortly after 7pm, involved fire in the roof space of the derelict Taxal Lodge School on Linglongs Road.

Firefighters used two main jets and an extension ladder to tackle the fire at both the front and the rear of the building.

The incident was expected to continue for much of the night although only one crew remained in attendance.
