Wharncliffe Heath comprises a beautiful nature reserve and important geological and archaeological site on the outskirts of northern Sheffield.
This 60ha site includes part of Wharncliffe Crags, 15 ha of heathland, mixed woodland and several ponds. The site is owned by the Forestry Commission and managed by the Forestry Commission in partnership with Wharncliffe Heathlands Trust.
The reserve is open to members of the public the majority of the time. It is however requested that dogs are kept under control with no fires at any time. Please help us protect the grazing livestock and vulnerable heathland vegetation present.
Whether you are a regular visitor or have yet to explore the site, we invite you to learn more about the reserve and the opportunities to help manage it for generations to come.
