Wyming Brook

A stunning woodland reserve home to an abundance of wildlife

Once set aside for the exclusive use of the nobility when it was part of the hunting and
hawking grounds of Rivelin Chase, Wyming Brook’s babbling streams, mossy crags and
sweet smelling pines are still protected today, as a valuable home to wildlife.
The difference now is that we can all visit and enjoy this little bit of wilderness on the western edge of Sheffield.
