Lower Moss Wood

Lower Moss WoodLower Moss Wood has been an educational reserve and wildlife hospital for over twenty years.

Ray Jackson, with help from his band of volunteers has been providing a place for schools, disabled visitors, environmental groups and many others to come and enjoy the countryside, learn about conservation and the environment and have a good day out.

It has also provided a place where injured animals and birds can recover and rehabilitate, before returning to the wild.

Ray Jackson was honoured with an MBE in the new year honours list in 2006. He is featured in the picture below caring for a couple of injured swans.
