Within an area roughly eight miles from north to south and 17 miles from east to west, the richness of the biodiversity of Barnsley owes its existence to the area’s landscapes and range of habitats. These result from differences in soils, geology, altitude, rainfall and not least changes introduced by man.
We have recently refreshed the section in the Barnsley Biodiversity Plan on landscapes. It can be found at: barnsleybiodiversity.org.uk/landscapes.html
