Little Woolden Moss

Explore Little Woolden Moss 

Little Woolden Moss is a one hundred and fifteen-hectare site which showcases the work to restore the damage that peat extraction causes to our mosslands. Nowadays Brown Hares are regularly seen, with Hobbies chasing Common Darter and Black Darter dragonflies all over this breath-taking mossland. A home for many bird species, Little Woolden Moss is also a fantastic place to see common lizards and the rare bog bush cricket in the summer months.

Useful info 

Access is only permitted along the public footpath running around the periphery of Little Woolden Moss and the permissive route linking to Astley Road. Please keep to the footpaths as the reserve is boggy and to help protect the sensitive wildlife. Please keep dogs on a lead.
