Notes[edit]

A Data rounded to one decimal place.
B Grid reference is based on the British national grid reference system, also known as OSGB36, and is the system used by the Ordnance Survey.[4]
C Those SSSIs with more than one OS grid reference are composed of multiple sections, separated by non-SSSI land.[4]
D Site notification consists of designating a site as an SSSI and consulting with the owner(s). This list uses the date notified under Section 28 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.
E Link to maps using the Magic Map service provided by Natural England.
