Ramshaw Rocks

Ramshaw Rocks form the eastern end of the gritstone escarpment which extends through Hen Cloud and the Roaches. The area is popular with climbers and with ramblers. Five Bennett's Wallabies were released here in the 1940s and they bred and became established. Population numbers have fluctuated reaching around 50 during the 1960s. They have declined over recent years and were thought to have died out but one was reported seen last year. I haven't seen any yet.
