Duncan, Bell Crag Flow, Northumberland
Duncan helps to manage the pockets of peatland at Bell Crag Flow, near Newcastle. The ancient landscapes that he works on are around 10,000 years old. These sites are great for wildlife but they also hold and filter rainfall, protect against flooding on the River Tyne and store carbon, too.

Wild places provide us with natural taps, sponges and filters.
