Digging on SSSI cave sites

Andrew Hinde, the BCA Conservation Officer, has asked that attention is drawn to the CNCC’s new Digging Guidelines – How to get permission to dig on a SSSI leaflet.

Many of the cave systems in the Dales are designated SSSIs, but the leaflet is relevant to anyone seeking to dig in a SSSI throughout England, or indeed anywhere else as it contains useful advice on conservation in the event of a new discovery or breakthrough.
