About Shapwick

Welcome to Shapwick Moor Nature Reserve

shapwick_leaflet_2013_coverSituated on the Somerset Levels, it was previously farmed for a variety of arable crops. The Hawk and Owl Trust is restoring it to permanent wet grassland. Some land is being restored to fen. Rough grass margins will encourage owls and other birds of prey and the small mammals they feed on. It is open year round and accessible by public and permissive paths. Shapwick Moor forms part of the Avalon Marshes network of reserves.
