See the rather zany article on the BBC News website that has been written in support of the Peatland conference taking place in Caithness, this week. someone had clearly been given a task to come up with 10 bits of knowledge about peat and appears to have found the task challenging. The list starts off well, but dips when it refers to 'Peat is sexy', which may be stretching a point!
