As one of the largest remaining intact raised bogs in Britain, Flanders Moss is a wild and ancient landscape. It has hardly changed for thousands of years.
The surface of the moss is a mosaic of sphagnum mosses and other specialist plants and animals, adapted to a land that is mostly water. You can hear the blast of birdsong in spring, see basking lizards in summer or watch the geese arrive in winter. Flanders Moss in worth a visit at any time of year.
