Our conservation projects on heather moorland 

We're home to three rare species of heather including ling heather, bell heather and cross-leaved heath. These plants have helped us achieve the status of Site of Special Scientific Interest meaning the work we do here to preserve our moorland habitat is important on a world-wide scale.
