Welcome 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.

Funders, including UK government and the Heritage Lottery Fund, have funded an ambitious programme to improve the value of this landscape for the people and wildlife living in and around it through the implementation of a Nature Improvement Area and a Landscape Partnership Scheme.

Nearly £2m has been awarded to engage communities, raise awareness, conserve and restore key habitats and support landowners to conserve and protect our special wildlife.
