A maze of paths can be explored amongst these quarried sandstone edges covered in woodland. The mixed areas of conifer and broad-leaved trees provide an ideal habitat for birds. These include Coal Tits, Warblers, Woodpeckers, and Goldcrests and over 120 species of butterfly and moth have been recorded on the site as a whole. Some relic heathland remains at the top of the Grinshill ridge which provides habitat for other plants and animals not present on other parts of the site. For centuries this was the centre of a busy quarrying industry as well as some copper mining. There are the remains of old buildings steps and other evidence of human habitation and industry on the site.
