Wyming Brook – Peak District

Wyming Brook Wildlife Marker Post
Wildlife Marker in Wyming Brook, Peak District National Park.

This time last year I was at Wyming Brook part of the Eastern Moors Project in the Peak District along with the Sheffield Wildlife Trust.

Sheffield is often cited as a green city but not many people know quite a lot of the Peak District falls inside the city boundaries.

Wyming Brook used to form part of the Rivelin Chase hunting grounds, kept private for the nobility.

Today it is a true haven for wildlife, especially birds, Crossbills being a major attraction for bird lovers. A trail around the gorge that Wyming Brook tumbles down leads the walker through the habitats of many species, the one above os for the Wren, a lovely little bird.

Its well worth a visit, you can spend as long or as short a time as you want. You will not be disappointed.

All of the items mentioned in the post can be found on or near Walk No.7 of Dark Peak Walks published by Cicerone Press.
