The Meres and Me

We are currently consulting with people living around Fenn's, Whixall and Bettisfield Mosses to find out what the local landscape means to them.

Flooding

Shropshire Wildlife Trust is hoping to buy land to the South of Whixall moss. We have received many enquiries about the flooded fields near Roving bridge in Whixall.

While we are unable to comment on any proposed management of the fields until we have completed the purchase, we thought it might be helpful to share some of the information that is available with regards to the floods.

Click here for Frequently Asked Questions regarding flooding.

If you would like more information then we have also included two reports that were commissioned into the floods in the early 2000’s:

Hydrological assessment of the NNR management of Fenn's, Whixall and Bettisfield Mosses

Investigation of flooding problems at Whixall

 

We have also added a LiDAR map that shows ground levels in the area. (LiDAR is an accurate way of measuring ground levels using  an aircraft mounted laser).

We will update this webpage as more information becomes available.
