Somerset Levels & Moors

The Internationally important Somerset Levels and Moors stretch from the clay-based coastal plains across peat-based Avalon Marshes to the feet of the Mendip and Blackdown Hills.

The Polden Ridge cuts across them as do a handful of rivers and numerous smaller waterways.

Sudden and unexpected viewpoints rise mysteriously having once formed islands in a flooded plain.

The result is a unique patchwork landscape steeped in history and brimming with rare wildlife.

As well as supporting a huge array of plant and bird species, the Somerset Levels and Moors are dotted with quaint villages which bear witness to the fact they have been exploited by people since the earliest times.

The Avalon Marshes is home to the world’s oldest known wooden trackway and ancient lake villages.

The second largest haul of Roman coins ever found was discovered here.

In the middle ages the monks from nearby monasteries drained much of the land to farm it.

This is where King Alfred the Great lived and the legends of King Arthur still resonate.

Today the area is mostly grassland and arable with willow grown commercially.

It is a magnet for nature lovers and those with creative and artistic talents who have workshops and galleries here.

With its fabulously rich wildlife it enjoys special protection and supports a number of reserves.

It has the largest lowland population of breeding wading birds and is a great place to hear bittern, see starling murmurations and watch otters.

Often overlooked, the Somerset Levels and Moors offer the chance to relax and unwind; to see rare species of plant, bird and animals under a wide expanse of sky surrounded by tranquil waterscapes.

Off the beaten track it is well served by footpaths and cycle routes as well as outlets for local crafts and produce.
