Moorland erosion
Moorland erosion
Even very occasional traffic by four wheel drive vehicles can soon start an area of erosion once the fragile heather has been damaged.
Often the peaty layer is quite shallow and clay and loose gravelly material is exposed. This is difficult to recolonise with any vegetation and becomes vulnerable especially in heavy rain spells or indeed high winds.
