Saltburn District

Geology and Scenery of Northern England

Meetings: 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month

Our next session is on Fri. 28th Jan., 10.00-11.30 am, downstairs Meeting Room, Saltburn Methodist Church. The heating will be on and there will be adequate ventilation. Hand sanitizers will be available.
We will continue with the geological period known as the Carboniferous, when "Britain" was in equatorial latitudes. Fossils, to be illustrated, demonstrate a time when many plants and animals, due to the very rich atmospheric oxygen, grew to giant proportions. Localities illustrating landscape features, the result of thick limestone deposits ("karst" scenery) and "Millstone Grit" will be illustrated. We will finish with a 1/4 hour video demonstrating the interaction of rain water with limestone.
Time permitting, we will have a look at the Upper Carboniferous Coal Measures, once so relevant to past Northern England industry.
Some of you might also wish to bring rocks/fossils for discussion and/or photo's of localities in Northern England which could be displayed on the projector at a later date.
