The fencing and permissive footpaths around the Main Heath area are being altered

The Wildlife Trust:

The fencing and permissive footpaths around the Main Heath area are being altered to keep grazing livestock and the public safe.

Freshfield Dune Heath is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and has received this protection thanks to the incredibly rare dune heath habitat found here. Without management, the heathland would develop into scrub and woodland and the incredible biodiversity found here would be lost.

To help manage scrub, we are going to be reintroducing grazing livestock such as cattle, sheep and goats. To ensure the safety of both the animals and the general public, we will be diverting and fencing part of the existing permissive footpaths around the re-serve.

The new fencing will be installed in August and the new permissive footpaths will be open from September. Please keep an eye out for diversion signs and footpath marker posts.

If you have any comments, please get in touch by emailing

Many thanks,

Andrew Hampson

Merseyside Reserves Officer.
