Whixall Moss
Whixall Moss
Whixall Moss is part of the third largest, and most southerly, raised bog in Britain. A former peat cutting area, being restored to its natural state since 1991, and now recognised as a "Wetland of International Importance". Surprising wilderness area of far horizons and big skies. Lots of wildlife and fascinating human as well as natural history throughout the area.
