Target 2010 – South East. The condition of the region’s Sites of Special Scientific Interest (ST126)

Thumbnail image of publication cover.

The South East region includes the counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, East Sussex, West Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, the Isle of Wight and Kent, and has a very diverse natural environment that reflects its underlying geology. The coastline boasts extensive areas of shingle, sandy beaches, grazing marsh, cliffs and estuaries, whilst inland there are large areas of heath, woodland and downland – the latter intersected by some of the finest chalk streams in the UK. This landscape has been heavily influenced by farming and local industry, and in recent centuries, has become extensively urbanised.
