North Pennines National Landscape

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

In 18 years of restoration the peatland programme in the North Pennines National Landscape (formerly the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) has successfully restored over 50,000 hectares of damaged peat within the protected landscape. 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.
