Peat Restoration Field Trip to Little Woolden Moss with Nick Jordan

Join exhibiting artist Nick Jordan on a field trip to Little Woolden Moss to restore and improve the damaged peatlands.

Peatlands provide vital habitats in the race to halt the Biodiversity and Climate crises we are facing and they need our help! You will carry out lots of practical work – like planting specialist Mossland plant species, as well as removing vegetation we don’t need. It’s a fantastic chance to experience being on a rare and globally important habitat – and so close to Manchester!



  • The meeting point will be The Wildlife Trust for Lancashire cabin on the edge of the Little Woolden Moss. The closest train station is Glazebrook train station, which is a 2 mile walk from the meeting point.


  • Don’t forget to bring wellies (the centre has a small selection that you can borrow), lunch and water, and we’ll provide work gloves and tools.


  • A reminder that we will be exposed to the weather conditions whilst working on the mosses, so please wear appropriate clothing and bring sunscreen, hat and waterproofs with you.
