CONGRATULATIONS - Shortlisted for AONB Designation

Highest Point of The Ridge at Raw Head

The Sandstone Ridge Trust is both proud and thrilled to announce that the Cheshire Sandstone Ridge has been shortlisted for AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) designation.

This announcement is a remarkable achievement and the Trustees would like to thank the many individuals and organisations that have supported us in this long-term ambition.

Without doubt, this is a watershed moment in seeking to 'Conserve, Connect and Inspire' current and future generations in understanding and caring for this unique landscape and its diverse habitats.

The shortlisting process has been long and rigorous and we very much look forward to moving forward with the designation process in the hope of achieving full status as an AONB.

There will be challenges ahead as we continue to demonstrate political and public engagement and support.

At this moment, however, celebrations are in order. CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!
