National GCR Sites

Cumbria has 151 National Geological Conservation Review (GCR) sites. These sites were assessed as being of National importance by JNCC by 1990.

GCR Sites and SSSIs :

Most of these sites were then designated as SSSI Geological or Mixed to give them National protection. Few are actively managed and so CGC believes it’s important that more people know about these sites and report any site issues direct to Natural England.

The Interactive Map of LGS sites, shows these GCR sites as blue dots, when you check the box. Some GCR sites are also our 5 star LGS sites and a few overlap with our LGS sites
