Sheffield SSSI

SSSIs are the UK’s very best wildlife and geological sites. They cover a range of important wildlife habitats and species from wetlands and rivers, to remote Moorland and peat bogs, to flower-rich meadows, to exposed cliffs and shingle beaches. They are notified and protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 in England and Wales, under the Nature Conservation (Scotland) Act 2004 in Scotland and the Wildlife (Northern Ireland) Order 1984 in Northern Ireland. Many of these sites are also designated as National Nature reserves, Special Areas of Conservation or Special Protection Areas under other pieces of legislation and so may have multiple layers of protection for the conservation interest.
