The moorland landscape is both richly inspirational and very important, highly regarded for its beauty and carefully managed to conserve wildlife, and carbon and water resources. Part of the special character of Exmoor's moorland is the complex of edges with other habitats and landscape types - such as woodland, pastures and woodland - and the dramatic changes in slope and contours of the hills and combes.

Some of the country’s highest quality rivers begin on high moor and peat bogs. The River Exe reaches all the way from its moorland source at Exe Head, down to Exmouth on the South Devon coast, and supplies many communities with drinking water along the way. Areas of coastal heaths include Bossington Hill in Somerset (above) and the breath-taking Hangman's Head with the tallest sea cliffs of England, near Combe Martin in Devon.

We have celebrated moorland through photography, art, education and events such as guided walks (browse the What's On calendar for plenty of ways to enjoy the landscape). You can find projects related to landscape matters within the Reconditioning Moorland programme.
