Cumbria BogLIFE Project film
May 14, 2019
Cumbrian BogLIFE was a 5 year bog restoration project, funded through the EU LIFE programme and managed by Natural England. It focused on the restoration of three lowland raised bogs in Cumbria: Roudsea Wood and Mosses, Wedholme Flow and Bolton Fell Moss. Working closely with specialist contractors and using their experience and expertise meant that innovative techniques were developed through the course of the project. The methods used in the project have put the right conditions in place to allow restoration to take place – it could be another 30 years before the bogs become fully functional again. This film highlights the main techniques used across the three sites.
