Tomorrow's Heathland Heritage, led by English Nature and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and a consortium of other partners, is making great strides towards the national Lowland Heathland Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) targets of restoring 58,000 hectares and re-creating a further 6,000 hectares. This in turn contributes to the overall UK BAP, which is geared to maintaining and creating a landscape that benefits people and wildlife.

 

Lowland heathland comprises a mosaic of different habitats. The climate of the Brecks, in Eastern England, makes its heathland quite distinct from, say, Hampshire's New Forest. This in turn has characteristics that distinguish it from heathlands in south Wales, Northern Ireland and elsewhere. From this home page, you can discover what Tomorrow's Heathland Heritage projects are doing for some of the UK's best lowland heathland, what makes each place special, how you can get there, what to enjoy on your visit and how your group or organisation can get involved through volunteer action.
