The area is know to have rare wild orchids & is also thought to be a site for endangered newts. It's a wildlife sanctuary used by local & tourists for walking, picnics, events etc & also hosts the unique modern StarDisc stone circle. The Stoney Wood Group who look after the beauty spot, after it was given to Wirksworth Town Council by Tarmac, are holding their AGM at 7.30pm on Tuesday 26th February 2019 in the Wirksworth Town Hall.
