    places of special interest- meaning?

    Hello all.

    What does this mean?


    • Some caves in Britain are called “places of special interest”.


    For more context please see the link - http://www.imgup.cz/image/LgrK (N.17)



    Thank you.

    In general it means particularly interesting places.

    Re: places of special interest- meaning?

    We have SSSIs (Sites of Special Scientific Interest) but I've never come across an official designation of "Places of Special Interest". However, I note that the words are not capitalised in your link so I think perhaps it is simply a term that cavers have chosen to use for those 48 caves.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
