Conservation nature reserves

Many of the reservoirs and lakes host valuable habitats and endangered species, such as native woodlands, Culm grassland, dormouse, bats and valley mire.

In order to ensure adequate protection and to balance conservation with recreation many of the sites have specially designated reserves which are set aside for conservation purposes. Some of these sites are internal designations without statutory authority and some sites have statutory designations such as Local Nature Reserves (LNR), Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and Special Areas of Conservation (SAC).

The links below provide further information on the different designations and their locations.
