The Earth really does move when you step out onto Flanders Moss National Nature Reserve. Now the largest lowland raised bog in the UK, a whole host of specialist plants and animals make their home in this fascinating place.
All year, the mosses create a carpet of reds, oranges and greens. In spring and summer, seas of bog cotton wave in the breeze and the Moss is noisy with the calls of nesting birds.
Frogs and toads jump in and out of pools and lizards bask on the boardwalk.
In August, heather adds its purple to the vivid moss greens, while the calls of geese and swans break the stillness of dusk in winter. You can enjoy the beautiful wilderness here by strolling along an all-abilities boardwalk, and climbing (stairs) a viewing tower for fantastic views across the reserve.
