A large portion of Thornley Woods is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. This plan, showing the location and extent of Thornley Wood SSSI, was kindly provided by Peter Shield from Gateshead Council. Please note it is subject to copyright.
Local Wildlife Site (LWS) Gateshead Council have also kindly provided their LWS citation for the Derwent Walk Country Park: among other areas, this covers the part of Thornley Woods which is not covered by the SSSI designation. This document is in 2 parts: Part 1 and Part 2 and all information was presumed to be correct at the time of production.
