This volume provides information on the diverse range of karst landscapes and cave systems in Great Britain, and describes nearly 100 GCR sites which show important features.

Summary

Areas of limestone outcrop are widely distributed throughout England and Wales and this is reflected in their rich diversity of karst landscapes and cave systems. Indeed, some of the most spectacular natural landscapes in Britain are karstic, and have provided geomorphologists with classic areas of study.
 
As well as a general description of the nature and origin of karsts and caves, this volume contains descriptions of almost one hundred Sites of Special Scientific Interest from the internationally renowned glaciokarst of the Yorkshire Dales, the Northern Pennines, Peak District, Mendips, Wales and other areas.
