Site of Special Scientific Interest information (SSSI)

There are ground nesting birds which build nests in the undergrowth throughout Shining Cliff Woods. At this very moment some very rare birds are nesting here.
Shining Cliff Woods are also a Site of Special Scientific Interest because of the rare wildlife that inhabits this very special place.
It is also illegal to cycle, ride horses, or damage a SSSI in any way. Unlawful biking, recreational or vehicle activity on a SSSI is a criminal offence which can result in a fine of up to £20,000 in a Magistrates Court, or unlimited fine in a Crown Court

PLEASE DO NOT CYCLE HERE! Except on the Restricted Byway, (simply the continuation of the Beggarswell track), which is allowed.

Walkers – Please stay on designated footpaths, keep all dogs under close control and DO NOT allow dogs to run through the undergrowth…

Thank you.

Martin Redman, Ecology Co-ordinator
