Rivelin Valley Conservation Group and Ruskin in Sheffield
A stream runs through the large mill dam, now silted up and overgrown with trees including Alder, Beech, Sycamore and Willow.
Roscoe Wheel was linked to the hamlet at Clough Fields (Crosspool) via a cart track and the bridge, and to Stannington and Bradfield by the footpath that winds up the steps behind the Wheel into Roscoe Bank Plantation. This mature woodland is popular with squirrels as well as both resident woodland birds and summer migrants like Wood Warbler and Blackcap.
The Roscoe Plantation Allotments provide valuable additional wildlife habitats in this area, particularly for birds and butterflies.
