Place Category: Wallaby Survey
Report: The Roaches
Wallabies on Kinder Scout evidently are not new. I received this email from David Hurst on 23 Sept 2009
So pleased to hear about recent sightings of Wallabies in the area, I really hope that it means they are re-populating again.
I found it very interesting to hear about sightings in the Kinder Scout area. My family lived in Castleton in the Hope Valley until recently and a few years back, I would guess 7 to 10 years ago, my brother sighted a Wallaby near to Mam Tor on the old abandoned road which is near to Kinder Scout. I have never previously heard a report of a sighting in this area so hopefully it suggests that a few had survived in this area and are still alive today.
Kind regards, David.
