Validity of Data

The information in the SMR is derived from a variety of sources and is believed to be correct. However the SMR is subject to update as knowledge and interpretation develops, additional research is done and new features and sites are discovered: so the validity of the data contained within it cannot be guaranteed.


Access to Sites

Most sites included on the SMR are not open to the public. Many are on private land and permission to visit must always be sought from the landowner or tenant.
