Blacka Moor

Situated just outside Sheffield, this magnificent moorland is the largest of Sheffield Wildlife Trust’s nature reserves, containing 180 hectares of breathtaking scenery.

Unique features on Blacka Moor include the varied heather, the gradual transition from woodland to open moor and its population of milberry bumblebees. Its diverse migrant bird population includes willow warblers, black caps, cuckoos, wheatears, stonechats and whinchats. The ease and regularity of seeing red deer on site is also a major bonus.

Grazing animals
Please keep dogs on leads on the pastures as there are sheep present (as well as ground-nesting birds). Dogs should be kept under close control throughout the site, especially during bird breeding season (31st March to 31st July) so that ground-nesting bird chicks can have a chance to successfully fledge and thrive.
