Locally Important Geological and Geomorphological Sites

Contact SGS and links to other relevant geology sites


The LGS information for Shropshire is hosted by the County Council's corporate GIS on behalf of the Shropshire Geological Society.

An outline of the geological details and boundaries for each site can be accessed by the general public using LocalView. Clicking on this link will open a new window which shows the whole county. Use the controls to change scale and location to reveal the extent of each LGS; clicking on it will reveal further details.

The identification number for each LGS (the "RIGS_ID") enables cross-reference with a separate table providing further details for that specific site.

Please be aware that the display and listing of a site does not necessarily indicate public access. In all cases, prior permission should always be sought when wishing to visit private land. Be aware that Shropshire is a rural county and that a landowner's livelihood often depends on successful farming. This may mean that permission to visit may be withheld at particular times of the year, for instance when animals are about to give birth or crops are at a sensitive stage of development. You must respect the landowners' wishes and at all times follow the Countryside Code.
