Foulshaw Moss Site of Special Scientific Interest lies in the coastal plain at the north-east end of Morecambe Bay, in south Cumbria. this 360ha site comprises a mosaic mostly of lowland raised bog, but also with ancient oak woodland, reedbed, fen and wet pasture. In 1998, Cumbria Wildlife Trust aquired the site, including two areas of woodland which have developed on low hills of shale adjacent to the raised bog. One of these, Ulpha wood, has been the subject of a recent restoration project by the trust."
