The Roaches (Leek, United Kingdom)

The Roaches is a prominent mountain ridge located high above the Staffordshire town of Leek, at the south western edge of the Peak District National Park. It is characterised by its steep rocky escarpments, which are popular with rock climbers, although the entire area is also a popular destination for hikers, birdwatchers and other outdoor enthusiasts. It covers an area of 975 acres and amongst its most visited parts are Ramshaw Rocks at Blackshaw Moor and nearby Hen Cloud where the rocks rise to a height of 505 metres (1,657 feet) above sea level. In clear weather conditions the peaks of Snowdon in North Wales, Winter Hill in Lancashire and much of Cheshire are visible. The Roaches provide a habitat for many rare species of birds including Peregrine Falcons and Black Grouse but they are perhaps most famous for their Wallabies. These Australian marsupials escaped from a local zoo in the 1950’s and have bred wild here ever since. It was thought that they were extinct by the 1990’s but recent sightings have proved that a small population still exists. Access to the entire area is free of charge, but visitors must keep to the designated public footpaths.
