Risley Moss

Risley Moss Nature Reserve, Warrington

The Risley Moss Project will provide improvements to the mini-moss education area.  Enhancing access for school groups and the public.

The project will include a raised and fenced boardwalk, replacing the existing path that will be unusable due to the essential bog restoration work and a formalised walkway within the only section of easily accessible moss land in the area.

A raised viewing platform will be installed overlooking the newly restored habitat. Another aspect of the project is to complete the rewetting of Risley Moss by blocking the last remaining drainage outlets from the site.


  • 179 m of fenced raised timber boardwalk created
  • 140 m of pathway created
  • 14 channels blocked
  • 210 m channels rewetted
  • 1.9 ha of priority habitat improved
