North Pennines AONB Partnership

The North Pennines AONB Partnership’s peatland restoration programme aims to conserve and enhance the internationally important peatland resource within the North Pennines AONB and UNESCO Global Geopark.

In 15 years of restoration the North Pennines AONB Partnership’s peatland programme has successfully restored over 40,000 hectares of damaged peat within the AONB. That’s an area over 3x greater than the size of Newcastle. The team has led on collaborative projects across the northern uplands including the Pennine PeatLIFE programme.
