Mosslands Gateway

New Moss Wood, Cadishead, Salford

This project has grown from the partnership working in the Carbon Landscape. The Woodland Trust, Salford City Council, Natural England and the Carbon Landscape Programme team have identified the need and opportunity to reconnect the Cadishead and Irlam community with the mossland landscape on their doorstep.

The plan has two elements:

  1. Restore the wet woodland and create new mossland, pond and ditch habitat to help keep the Willow Tits, bring back the Water Voles and provide a key stepping stone for wetland wildlife across the mossland area.
  2. Develop an adventure trail and gateway that will bring in the community into the newly restored habitat.
