Visit The Roaches; where Buzzards fly & Wallabies still roam!

The Roaches, Peak District National Park, Leek, Staffordshire

For more information follow this link:  

The Roaches is a wind carved outcrop of gritstone rocks straddling the parishes of Leekfrith and Heathylee in the Peak District National Park about 4 miles north of Leek, Staffordshire and 8 miles south of Buxton, Derbyshire.

Five Bennett's Wallabies escaped from a private zoo at Roaches Hall during World War II. These few bred and became as many as 50. They have been seen by many people over the years. Have you seen them?

There are great opportunities for rock climbing on The Roaches. Climbs or Routes are given names by the person who first makes the successful climb. There are now hundreds of named climbs on the Roaches with names like "Perverted Staircase", "Demon wall", "Snap, Crackle and Andy Popp" and "Valkyrie".

There are several walks on The Roaches, each approximately 2 hours long; this will give you plenty of time to visit the pub or tea rooms to chill out after your exertions.

If you see a wallaby on your travels don't forget to tell us about it.
