What we do



Working on 16 sites across the 3 protected areas involved in the project, Pennine PeatLIFE will restore 1353ha of eroding blanket bog using site-specific Sphagnum-based restoration techniques.

The Pennine PeatLIFE project uses five basic steps to restore bare peat. These steps have been developed and modified over several years and are based on other projects across the UK and Canada. The steps have been modified to suit the bogs of northern England.

The five basic steps to restoration are:

1)      Hydrology

2)      Slopes

3)      Heather brash

4)      Re-start vegetation growth

5)      Sphagnum re-establishment
