The report details a short survey of tufa forming sites in Staffordshire, commissioned by the Staffordshire Wildlife trust. Its principal aim was to determine which tufa sites could be classed as ‘H7220 Petrifying springs with tufa formation (Cratoneurion)’ under the Habitats Directive. Recommendations are also made for future site enhancements. Water chemistry data collected from these sites is compared to data from similar tufa forming springs across the UK.
