Description

Yarncliffe Wood is often referred to as Padley Gorge, because Burbage Brook runs straight through the middle of it. Sessile oak (Quercus petraea) and silver birch (Betula pendula) grow alongside common beech (Fagus sylvatica).  An abandoned millstone lies by the wayside, a remnant of the days when quarrying was one of the main industries in the area.  There is a large percentage of oak growing here because it was deliberately planted to supply timber for the charcoal powered Sheffield iron industry.
