Flanders Moss Nature Reserve

You can enjoy the beautiful wilderness here by strolling along an all-abilities boardwalk, with a viewing tower that gives fantastic views across the reserve.

A stroll along the boardwalk at Flanders Moss takes you into a remote and water-logged land. 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. 

Top attractions

  • Enjoy panoramic views over a vast expanse of bog from our viewing tower.
