What to expect
Eastern Moors on the fringes of Sheffield is a unique joint venture between The RSPB and The National Trust. Known as the Eastern Moors Partnership, the two organisations manage Eastern Moors for people and wildlife on behalf of the Peak District National Park. Breathtaking scenery and nationally renowned climbing edges combine with wildlife to offer something for everyone where the entire area is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). You will find heather moorland, blanket bog, acid grassland and woodland supporting large populations of adder and the nationally scarce Golden-ringed dragonfly, amongst other key upland species. Currently the facilities at Eastern Moors are restricted to parking. Toilets are just a wild wee on the moors or a trip down the road to the National Trust, Longshaw Estate, where there is also a tea-room and shop.
