Pestfurlong Moss

Gorse Covert Mounds, Warrington

A rare, lowland raised bog habitat which we are seeking to conserve through rewetting, scrub and woodland management. Pestfurlong moss is a really important area as it connects the larger Risley and Holdcroft mosses, allowing wildlife to move through the landscape.

Pestfurlong Moss is managed by the dedicated, local community volunteer group - Friends of Gorse Covert Mounds, and this restoration project will be an excellent way to engage local residents in the Carbon Landscape. Building footpaths and raised boardwalks will give people access to this important habitat, whilst also protecting sensitive areas of the site.
