The Yorkshire Peat Partnership, or YPP, is an umbrella organisation comprising the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority, Natural England, North York Moors National Park Authority and the Environment Agency. It also receives support from Nidderdale AONB, Pennine Prospects, Environment Agency, National Trust, Yorkshire Water, Moorland Association, National Farmers Union and Yorkshire Dales Rivers Trust. The aim of the partnership is to restore and conserve upland peat resources in order to ensure the long-term future these unique and valuable habitats. In this film Pete Christopherson from the partnership describes the work being undertaken to restore peatland bogs on the North Yorkshire Moors where grips (drainage channels) have become badly eroded and the impact of drainage combined with other factors has lead to the development of large eroding gullies in many areas. The aim is to block these grips and to restore the water table to the peatlands and prevent further peat erosion.

The techniques used by the Yorkshire Peat Partnership are based on current available evidence and may be subject to further refinement as further research is carried out. It is also likely that, in some circumstances, individual site conditions will require modifications or refinements to these standard techniques.
