CANCELLED: Peatland Restoration: Bishop’s Allotment Conservation Day

Event Date: 27/06/2020

This event has been cancelled.


Saturday 27th June

10am – 4pm

Layby off Brow Edge Road, Backbarrow, Cumbria


This site has several small mires in an area of bracken and woodland and recently several raft spiders have been discovered here. This species is scarce, so we hope to create more habitats for them by creating further pools by blocking drains with wooden dams. If you would like to help create some wooden dams then please get in touch.

Please bring a packed lunch and wear wellington boots or waterproof walking boots and appropriate warm clothing. Ideally bring some spare clothes.

Booking is essential, phone 01539 816300 or email
