The Geological Conservation Review was designed to identify sites of national and international importance needed to show all the key scientific elements of the Earth heritage of Britain. It includes over 3000 GCR sites, selected from around 100 categories (the GCR ‘Blocks’) and are published in a series of 45 volumes. Developed by the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC).
