Our work on the Longshaw Estate and Eastern Moors

A ranger helps a girl learn to tie knots at an event in the woods, with a friend in the background.

Take a look at how we're looking after the landscape at Longshaw, Burbage and the Eastern Moors. Watch a video to see the wildlife and habitats we're protecting.

Woodland work

Over the next five to ten years our rangers will be managing a programme of woodland work at Longshaw; opening up some glades, felling many of the old scots pine plantation trees and planting native species.
More woodland edges and open parkland will mean better habitats for lots of insects and birds.

Improvements to our car park

We have made improvements to Woodcroft car park, doubling the number of spaces and creating an all-weather surface with better drainage.

Working together

Located within the Peak District National Park, on the fringes of Sheffield, the Eastern Moors are managed by us and our partners RSPB.
In January 2011, after detailed negotiation, the Partnership signed the lease to manage the Moors on behalf of the Peak District National Park, with whom we retain a key relationship.
The Eastern Moors Partnership is part of a wider vision for the area under the Sheffield Moors Partnership (SMP). This enables joined up thinking between adjacent land management, benefiting wildlife and people on a greater scale.
