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 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.
