Ufton Fields SSSI

Ufton Fields is a SSSI and managed by Warwickshire Wildlife Trust (WWT). Their panel with SSSI information and interpretation is installed at Ufton Fields and shown here, courtesy of WWT. For Ufton Fields, the WWT website has Visitor Information and Wild Walks

WGCG has extensive and very interesting geological information on Ufton Fields. Please see at: WGCG Conservation at Ufton Fields  The focus of the geological interest is an outcrop of unquarried White Lias Limestone (Langport Member) which warrants conservation and designation as a Local Geological Site (LGS) because there are now very few such exposures, accessible or otherwise, in Warwickshire.

Burton Dassett Hills Country Park

Conservation Committee has started on a project to design three interpretation boards for the Burton Dassett Hills Country Park.  The first is now designed and was erected with the co-operation of the WCC Ranger for the hills.  The themes  for the other two boards are “The Park and the wider geology and landscape” (essentially what you can see from the Hills) and “The iron mining industry”.  The Burton Dassett Hills are Local Geological Site 33 and information can be found in the LGS section of our website.
