On 1st May 2013, Staffordshire Wildlife Trust began its 125-year lease of the Roaches, a magnificent 975 acre landscape on the edge of the Peak District National Park.
As the new managers, we promise to: Promote enjoyment and understanding of the Roaches and ensure it is a fantastic place to visit; Protect its unique and wonderful wildlife; Offer opportunities for everyone to get involved.
Work parties are now being held every Friday and the last Saturday of the month (contact 01889 880100 for more details) and great progress has already been made on repairing dry-stone walls, scrub clearance and surveying paths.
