Flitwick Moor Nature Reserve is the largest area of wetland in Bedfordshire. Owned and managed jointly by the Wildlife Trust and Central Bedfordshire Council, here you will find a wide variety of flora and fauna. Part of the Moor is a ‘Site of Special Scientific Interest’ protecting areas of valley mire habitat with insects and plants rare in southeast Britain.

Flitwick Moor is also known for its chalybeate springs of water rich in iron from the Greensand. The iron-rich water was bottled and sold as a tonic from the late 19th century until the 1930s.

The Two Moors Heritage Trail connects Flitwick Moor to the wetland recreated on Flitton Moor to the east.
