Part of the Peak District National Park, the Eastern and Burbage Moors sit on the fringes of Sheffield, England’s fourth largest city. Boasting a diverse mix of heather moorland, acid grassland, blanket bog and woodland, the entire site is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Home to an abundance of wildlife species, the Eastern and Burbage Moors are well known for its population of adders and herd of red deer and is also home to the elusive water vole and nationally scarce golden-ringed dragonfly. It's designation as a Special Protection Area (SPA) reflects the presence of bird species such as short eared owl and golden plover. It's dry heath, blanket bog and sessile oak woodland habitats have resulted in a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) designation.

With 5,700 archaeological sites recorded across the Eastern Moors, including medieval guide stoops, industrial millstones and WW2 mortar scars on the rocks, the site is of significant historical interest.

Most of the Eastern and Burbage Moors are under open access, with a network of bridleways and footpaths as well as internationally renowned climbing edges. Appreciated by many, the site entices wildlife enthusiasts, adventure sport seekers and those looking for quiet enjoyment of the landscape.

The Eastern Moors Partnership is part of a wider vision for the area under the Sheffield Moors Partnership (SMP). This enables joined up thinking between adjacent land management, benefiting wildlife and people on a greater scale.

The Eastern Moors Partnership is a joint venture between the National Trust and the RSPB, managing the Eastern Moors on behalf of the Peak District National Park Authority and the Burbage Moors on behalf of Sheffield City Council.

As the UK's leading conservation charities, the National Trust and the RSPB has a combined national membership of 4.6 million and a reputation for excellence in upland land management, management of historic environments and quality visitor enjoyment.

The Partnership works under a Partnership Board made up of key representatives from the National Trust and the RSPB, working in consultation with site staff.  The Partnership has developed its own brand and culture to support its identity as a new organisation, with staff jointly managed by the Partnership.
