to the Meres and Mosses website
The Meres & Mosses of Shropshire and Cheshire are a forgotten mosaic of wetlands important for some of the rarest wildlife in the UK. Pressures of man over the last two hundred years have changed the landscape and threatened its wildlife.
Even some people living here are not fully aware of its importance. Funders, including the Government and the Heritage Lottery Fund, have funded an ambitious programme to make a difference through a Nature Improvement Area and a Landscape Partnership Scheme.
Nearly £2m has been awarded to engage communities, raise awareness, conserve and restore habitat and support landowners to conserve and protect our special wildlife. Find out all about this and get involved.
