Some fantastic images of Whixall Moss have been added to the Virtual Shropshire website this week, courtesy of local photographer Sabine Hutchinson. Whixall Moss and the adjoining Bettisfield and Fenn's Mosses are Sites of Specific Scientific Interest (SSSI) and combined are the third largest area of raised bog wilderness in Britain, at 948 hectares in size.
