Danes Moss is a historic peat bog and rare wildlife habitat which holds massive amounts of carbon in its soil.
This place once extended across a thousand acres to the south of the Cheshire town of Macclesfield.
After centuries of destruction by humans – and the complicity of local governments – less than 300 acres of this wilderness remains.
Now, Cheshire East Council are planning a massive housing and retail development on 136 acres of the Moss.
The project is called the ‘South Macclesfield Development Area‘ – 950 homes, a supermarket, retail sheds and a link road that would devastate this sacred place, the last refuge of an ancient landscape.
