Next stage of restoration work starts on Crowle Moors

Work has started on the latest stage of restoring Crowle Moors.

North Lincolnshire Council is carrying out work on a section of land which will see peat bunds created and dams installed, allowing peat bog species to recolonise the area. A link to Thorne Moors will also be created.

The moor used to be used for peat extraction but is now a site of special scientific interest.

Pictured (l-r) at the start of the new work are Darren Whitaker, project manager, Pete Flanagan, Dean Hobson, Phil Maxwell, all from North Moor Plant, Teresa Hughes, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and John Briggs, of North Lincs Council.
