Ripon & District

Geology

We are an outdoor group for people wishing to look for interesting rocks and minerals. The sites we visit tend to include old quarry spoil heaps. With this in mind, outdoor clothing and shoes are essential.

The sites are researched as much as possible before visiting. Interesting finds can then be researched through books or on line if need be.

To date we have had 9 outings, covering areas such as, Langthwaite, Grassington and around Surrender Bridge. Several interesting samples of crystals and fossils have been found.

no specific knowledge needed, just a keen interest in the above. If this sounds like your thing, or would like more information, please get in touch.
