The Longshaw Estate is on the edge of moorland near Hathersage and Grindleford in Derbyshire. It was originally a hunting estate of Lord Rutland, and is now a National Trust property in the Peak District National Park.
The field in front of the sheep is used to hold sheep dog trials every September. It looks like they can’t wait for them to start.
There is no entrance fee to get onto the property, but it is a pay and display car park.
