Conder Head back in October 2018
This fire on the Abbeystead Estate’s Conder Head back in October has interested me.
Is it on blanket bog? Apparently not.
Is it on deep peat? Apparently so – see below a reply I received today.
Well, we got there in the end. Natural England/Defra appear to be happy for deep peat areas to be burned for grouse shooting provided they are not blanket bogs. This is the agency and department on which we rely for environmental protection.
