Cheshire Wildlife Trust

Working at the heart of the meres & mosses

We’ve been taking action in the meres and mosses for many years, and made our home at the centre of this special landscape at Bickley Hall Farm in 2006. As a board and working group member, we’re improving access to our south Cheshire farm – with the Bar Mere wetland on its fringes, restoring lost meres and mosses habitats at Blakenhall and working towards a vision for an inspiring educational hub for the region in our historic farm buildings. We’re working with local schools in achieving the coveted John Muir Award, whilst encouraging and supporting the public to help us discover the wildlife that makes a home in the meres and mosses.
