South Solway Moss Nature Reserve

The South Solway Moss Nature Reserve is home to Bowness Common, Glasson Moss, Wedholme Flow and Drumburgh Moss, which are four of the best remaining peat bogs in Europe. The mosses are managed carefully to make sure the water table is kept at a high level to encourage the growth of peat-forming sphagnum mosses.

Bowness-on-Solway Nature Reserve

Bowness-on-Solway Nature Reserve is opposite Campfield Marsh, which is a former gravel extraction site with ponds and wetlands, and surrounded by natural grassland. Visitors can enjoy a circular walk which takes in pools and flower-rich grasslands.
