Carbrook Ravine

A small but varied reserve nestled amongst the urban landscape

In the south east of Sheffield near the Manor estate sits Carbrook Ravine. This narrow valley used to form part of an extensive 2,500 acre deer park for the gentry of Sheffield. Although there are no deer now, there is plenty of wildlife. The site covers 16 acres, contains nine separate habitat types and is an important resource for wildlife.
