Barbrook Moor, also known as Big Moor and Ramsley Moor, is rich in stone circles and cairns,situated in the Peak District, 10miles from Sheffield.

Barbrook is rich in Neolithic and Bronze age relics such as stone circles cairns and even an abandoned settlement called Swine Sty.

It was also a catchment area for the Barbrook Reservoir but it is no longer in use. It was 8.2m deep and provided approx half a million gallons a day to northern Chesterfield, suppling about 5,000 homes. It was owned by Severn Trent Water Authority and built in 1910. The dam was breached in 2002.

It is now managed on behalf of the Peak Park by the Eastern Moors Partnership which is a joint venture between the RSPB and the National Trust.
