Barnsley’s rich and diverse countryside includes areas of particular importance for wildlife. There are sites in Barnsley that have important, distinctive and threatened habitats and species. Some sites are recognised nationally and given legal protection. Others have been identified as having local signficance but don’t have the same level of protection.
We have recently refreshed our information on Barnsley’s designated sites and whether they are protected. It can be found at barnsleybiodiversity.org.uk/sites.html
We would welcome your comments. Is there more information that you would like? Is there anything that should be altered? Please add a comment at the bottom of this page.
