Heysham Moss SSSI, Morecambe, Lancashire
Heysham Moss SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) is a small site situated on the east side of the Morecambe - Heysham railway, some two miles south of Morecambe. It has only recently been opened to the public. Part of this moss supports bog vegetation the rest being covered in wet woodland. It occupies a natural depression on the coastal plain of the Lune Estuary and is a surviving core fragment of a much larger mossland shown on eighteenth century maps.
