Conservation work has started on the Derwent and Howden moors, as part of the €16 million five-year MoorLIFE 2020 project, which will complement existing projects being spearheaded by the Moors for the Future Partnership. Materials used and measures implemented are site-specific and the work on the Howden and Derwent moors will see plastic dams used to block gullies in order to raise the water table and rewet the moorland. The dams are being flown onto site and will then be installed by hand by the National Trust’s Peak District Estate Team who are delivering this part of the MoorLIFE 2020 project.
