This zone lies on the western edge of South Yorkshire in the Barnsley and Sheffield districts. Much of the zone lies within the Peak District National Park and has a wild and open character of blanket bog and heather moorland. Although seemingly natural in character this landscape is a product of human actions. The low vegetation has been maintained by sheep grazing and burning of the heather. Much of the land was divided up with long, straight, drystone walls in the 19th century to indicate ownership. Some areas are still actively managed for grouse shooting.
