Carvers Rocks

UK»England»Derbyshire»Carvers Rocks

The Carvers Rocks site is very important for its range of habitats and the result of varying geology and hydrology, lieing at the southern end of Foremark Reservoir. In the valley where the stream runs into the reservoir there are a range of unusual habitats from marsh to alder woodland. Visiting in summer these wet marshes are a good place to see and hear reed buntings, and if lucky the breeding great crested grebes. On the drier slopes woodland takes over and various woodland species can be found. In the more open areas you may hear woodcock roding on early summer evenings. Gaining the higher ground Carvers Rocks has one of the last patches of lowland heath in Derbyshire.
