Longshaw Estate

Longshaw Estate is an area of moorland, woodland and farmland located within the Peak District National Park, Derbyshire, England.

The Estate has been owned by the National Trust since 1931, after being first bought by the people of Sheffield in 1928. It is part of the larger National Trust Peak District Estate and is run along with the High Peak Estate and White Peak Estate. At Longshaw, there is a tea room, shop and a learning facility called the Moorland Discovery Centre, which is a joint venture between National Trust and the Peak National Park. Also staff and volunteers run many events throughout the year on the estate relating to wildlife, the estate itself and many other topics.[1] The name of Longshaw is thought to have derived from the long wood in Padley Gorge.[1]
