Local Geological Sites (LGS)
Warwickshire’s Local Geological Sites (LGS) are important. They underpin and complement Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) – also called Triple-SI.
WGCG surveys and reports on the over 80 LGS and 20 SSSI sites in Warwickshire.
The Geology Wall at Brandon Marsh is a great way to see more than 600 million years of local geology in a one place in a few minutes.
Million years of the Earth's history is preserved in the rocks of Warwickshire and displayed in the Brandon Wall with information boards to explain everything.
