Lindow Moss

Racecourse Road, Wilmslow, SK9 5LW
Lindow Moss is one of the largest lowland peatlands in Cheshire, shown clearly on Burdett’s 1777 map of Cheshire as Lindow Common. In 1984 Lindow Moss came to international prominence with the discovery of an almost intact Iron Age bog body – Lindow Man. This is said to be one of the most visited exhibits in the British Museum. Visit Lindow Moss and understand more about this ancient landscape. From June you will be able to download a Heritage Trail which will take you on a journey across the area with plenty of points of interest along the way. ​Discover Lindow has plenty of activities taking place during 2024 to commemorate 40 years since the discovery of Lindow Man.
