Working on an upland peat bog in the North Pennines comes with its own set of challenges, from dense clouds of midges in summer to freezing conditions in winter. Below are some photos from my fieldsite at Moor House, taken in February. The snow was so deep that driving into the fieldsite was impossible, but we enjoyed the walk.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Embedded below is a map, showing the approximate location of the field site where I do most of my work. More about Moor House to follow!
