The Local Nature Reserve was designated in 1999[1] and extends over an area of approximately 100 hectares.[2][3]
Shirebrook Valley Nature Reserve, extends over an area of approximately 100 hectares and is based around the former site of the Coisley Hill Sewage Works, which closed in the early 1990s. The former manager's office has been converted into a visitors' centre. The reserve includes Beighton Marsh, an area of reed-grass swamp situated at its eastern end, which supports birds such as reed bunting as welll as mammals such as voles.
Within the reserve is Wickfield Plantation, one of the few remaining areas of lowland heath and coppiced oak woodland inside Sheffield.
The reserve contains Carr Forge Dam which is fed by a stream from Birley Spa and is a location for wildlife. Since the reserve was created new ponds have been established Also added to the eastern side of the reserve is a landscaped former landfill site, called Linley Bank Meadow, which is now home to skylarks and a likely location for raptors
