Search for designated site details
This page allows you to view detailed information about sites designated for their wildlife or geological interest.

If you know the name of a Designated Site and want to know more about it, you can search for it by typing all,
or part of the name, below.

To view all the sites of a given designation (e.g. Local Nature Reserve, Site of Special Scientific Interest etc.)
you can select it using the ‘Designation type’ drop-down.

If you select a county (from the drop-down list or map), all the sites within that county will be displayed.
(Note, that a standardised set of counties has been used rather than unitary authorities.)

You can also combine searches: for example, typing the word 'river' in ‘Site name’ and selecting 'Staffordshire'
as a county will show all sites in Staffordshire with 'river' in the name. Selecting 'Norfolk' as a county and
the Designation type 'Local Nature Reserve' will show all those Reserves in Norfolk.
