Continuing our programme of peatland restoration

A new area of peatland on our Abbeystead Estate will be restored following £1.4m funding from the Government’s Nature for Climate Peatland Restoration Grant Scheme, which will be shared by similar schemes across Lancashire.

Continuing Grosvenor’s ongoing programme of peatland restoration at Abbeystead, the works at Hare Syke Crag – part of the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – will cover an area of approximately an acre and include revegetating areas of bare peat, reprofiling peat hags, which are eroded by drip edges, and blocking gullies to better retain rainwater.

Specialist monitoring equipment will also be installed to automatically measure and log changes to the water table.
