The geology group meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month.  During the spring, summer and autumn months meetings take the form of visits to sites of geological interest within the area.

 

In the winter months we tend to have indoor meetings, where we might have talks or visits to see geological collections in museums within the region.

Indoor meetings provide us with an opportunity, amongst other things, to revisit, through the use of power point presentations, visits we have made earlier in the year, this enables us to take a more detailed and leisurely look at features we might not have taken much notice of at the time of the actual visits.  We also provide opportunities for group members to share their rock and fossil collections and have occasional speakers to share with us their experience of and expertise in particular aspects of geology.

By clicking on the 'Report' section of the calendar of visits, you will be able to read about the visits we have made during the past year.

We are fortunate to live in a part of the world where the geology is rich and varied.  We hope that our programme for the year captures something of this variety and richness - there should be something to capture everyone's interest.

All are welcome. No formal qualifications in the subject are necessary, just an enthusiastic curiosity in wanting to know more about how and why the landscape has come to be the way it is.

Stout footwear and waterproof clothing is recommended for visits to sites. Details of visits, including information about site conditions, safety and accessibility, will be sent out by email prior to a visit to those who apply to participate.

March 2nd

            Welcome to the new Geology group. We had our first meeting last Wednesday at Willow Court when we decided to restart the group after a lapse of a few months due to very sad circumstances. With the help of previous members and new members we hope the group will be able to evolve. We were able to put together a programme for the first six months of 2018.

    At the moment I am playing the role of co-ordinator with the hope of getting the group up and running again.If you have any queries or comments please get in touch.
