low growing

. '''Moorland''' or '''moor''' is a type of habitat (Habitat (ecology)), in the temperate grasslands, savannas, and shrublands biome, found in upland (upland (geology)) areas, characterised by low-growing vegetation on acidic soils and heavy fog. Moorland nowadays generally means uncultivated hill land (such as Dartmoor in South West England), but the Old English ''mōr'' also refers to low-lying wetlands (such as Sedgemoor, also SW England). It is closely related to heath (Heath (habitat)) although experts disagree on precisely what distinguishes the types of vegetation. Generally, moor refers to highland (Highland (geography)), high rainfall zones, whereas heath refers to lowland zones which are more likely to be the result of human activity. '''Broomfield''' is a village and civil parish in the Sedgemoor district of Somerset, England, situated about five miles north of Taunton. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 224.

Democrats fared well in Burnham and Highbridge areas. In 1995, the Liberal Democrats and Labour took 26 seats together, out-numbering the Conservatives 24 seats, and they formed a coalition. This continued until 1999, when the Conservatives re-took Sedgemoor, crushing the Liberal Democrats from 12 seats, to just 2. The Liberal Democrats lost even their safe seat of Highbridge to Labour. In 2000, a Conservative Councillor died, and a By-Election was called in his seat of Huntpsill and Pawlett

Sedgemoor

'''Sedgemoor''' is a low lying area of land in Somerset, England. It lies close to sea level south of the Polden Hills, historically largely marsh (or "moor" in its older sense). The eastern part is known as King's Sedgemoor, and the western part West Sedgemoor. Sedgemoor is part of the area now known as the Somerset Levels and Moors. Historically the area was known as the site of the Battle of Sedgemoor.

Sedgemoor has given its name to a local government district (Non-metropolitan district) formed on 1 April 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, by a merger of the municipal borough of Bridgwater, the Burnham-on-Sea urban district (Urban district (Great Britain and Ireland)), Bridgwater Rural District and part of Axbridge Rural District. The district covers a larger area than the historical Sedgemoor, extending north of the Polden Hills across the Somerset Levels and Moors to the Mendip Hills.
