Wide, wet and wild
An oasis of open windswept moors hidden in the lowlands, Blawhorn is a site full of secrets. By using a special boardwalk to cross the peat, you'll soon discover some of its treasures, like the nodding white heads of bog cotton in early summer or the explosive cackle of a red grouse as it bolts from the heather. Beneath your feet there's over 8000 years of history, locked into the peat layers of this raised bog.
