Dawn Walk on Lindow Moss: Saturday 22 September 2018

On the day of the Autumnal Equinox, an opportunity to experience a Dawn Walk on Lindow Moss, Wilmslow – once the most extensive lowland peat bog in Cheshire

This will be a guided walk of 2.5 to 3 miles with readings along the way. The walk will celebrate the importance and special qualities of this ancient mossland and how, after many years of peat extraction we must press for its proper restoration to an attractive natural peat bog landscape and home for wildlife.  It’s especially atmospheric at sunrise – not to be missed!

Meet at 6.30, at the Lindow Common car park, Racecourse Road, Wilmslow. Come prepared with clothing and footwear suitable for walking over rough ground and a torch to light your way.  Don’t forget to have something to eat before you set out so early in the morning!

For more information and to sign up for this free event please register at Eventbrite.  We will be able to update you with any changes to the itinerary should this be neccessary.
