Changing Delamere

An exciting new project has been launched to restore the lost Meres and Mosses on the Forestry Commission estate at Delamere Forest, near Northwich in Cheshire, which have been dry for up to 80 years.
The Forestry Commission and Natural England are spearheading plans for the re-wetting of Delamere in a bid to conserve the rare natural landscape and benefit important wildlife and plant species in the region.
The work to re-wet them is all part of Natural England’s £4 million Wetland Vision which will fund almost 2,000 hectares of wetland recovery projects in the next two years.
