The wallabies of the Peak District came from a small private zoo in the grounds of Roaches House near Leek. The zoo was established in the mid 1930s by Henry Courtney Brocklehurst,who tragically lost his life in World War 2. These few bred and became as many as 50. They have been seen by many people over the years. I had heard of them from lots of people and although i walked on the Roaches for years i had never seen them. Then one day as i was looking for trees to photograph one just hopped across the path.
