Meres and Mosses

The Meres and Mosses Project ran for 5 years until October 2017. It was an ambitious programme to improve the value of the Meres and Mosses landscape through the implementation of a Nature Improvement Area and Landscape Partnership Scheme.

The Meres & Mosses of Shropshire and Cheshire are a forgotten mosaic of wetlands, important for some of the rarest wildlife in the UK.

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

Marches Boglife project

As of 2016, the Marches Mosses Boglife project commenced thanks to funding from HLF and Life funding. This is a £5 million project to continue the restoration of the habitats of Fenn's, Whixall, Bettisfield and Wem mosses.
