Regionally Important Geological and Geomorphological Sites (RIGS) are designated by locally developed criteria and are currently the most important places for geology and geomorphology outside statutorily protected land such as Sites of Special Scientific Interest.

The designation of RIGS is one way of recognising and protecting important Earth science and landscape features for future generations to enjoy.

There are 25 Regionally Important Geological and Geomorphological Sites within the Ribble Valley.

For more information on Regionally Important Geological and Geomorphical Sites please visit the Association of UK RIGS Groups or the Lancashire RIGS group.
