On September 8th we will be doing a tour by special tractor trailer funded by the National trust across Hartland Moor and Middlebeere peninsular.

Seating about 30 people on proper seating and covered roof it is an amazing trip with farmers Jake and Chrissy and historian Pam White highlighting the use and history of the heathland, Rewilding and new agricultural practices as part of the NNR heathland project.

We will have to meet at Newline Farm north of Norden at 1.45 to leave at 2pm and return at 4pm.

Seating is limited, so Members will need to confirm they are attending.

Hartland Moor was declared a national nature reserve in 1954, under the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act 1949. That designation applies to 243 hectares (600 acres) of the site; it is part of a larger area that was notified as an SSSI in 1986. The northeastern part of the original SSSI was later excluded to become part of Poole Harbour SSSI; currently the Hartland Moor SSSI has an area of 299.9 hectares (741 acres). A large part of the site is owned by the National Trust.
