Sheep in the Mist
Sheep in the Peak District, Derbyshire, England

Don’t be alarmed if you come across a sheep or two while hiking in one of the woodland areas of the Peak District National Park. Farm pastures border parts of the park, and some are situated within the park’s boundaries. From time to time, sheep from local herds wander off their pastures and are spotted in wooded areas like this, perhaps making weary hikers wonder if they’re seeing things.

The Peak District is an upland area in England at the southern end of the Pennines. It is mostly in northern Derbyshire, but also includes parts of Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Staffordshire and Yorkshire. An area of great diversity, it is split into the northern Dark Peak, where most of the moorland is found and the geology is gritstone, and the southern White Peak, where most of the population lives and the geology is mainly limestone.
