Barnsley & District

Barnsley Rocks Geology Group

Barnsley’s past fame and fortune is a consequence of the town's underlying geology. However the local Neuropteris geology is not all about coal, within the district is geological and fossil evidence of an estuary, 320 Million year old mussel bed mighty rivers,flood plains, dense tropical forests, arid deserts and subtropical lagoons. Thin coal seam

Through presentations and field visits Barnsley Rocks Geology Group will explain and explore these features.
Further afield are The Peak District and The Yorkshire Dales, both of which have some of the best “in your face” geology in the north of England.

Meeting every third Friday of the month starting at 10:00 on 21st February, 2020, this group will look at Geology. Contact it’s leader for detail. The venue will be Burton Grange, Lundwood.
