Saltburn District

Geology and Scenery of Northern England

Dear Colleagues,
I hope you are all well and none the worse for the Covid pandemic.
For those who wish to continue our sessions, (2nd and 4th Fridays of each month) the next meeting will be 10.00am until 12 noon on Sept. 10th, at the same venue, viz. downstairs Meeting Room at Saltburn Methodist Church. Hand sanitizers will be available as well as adequate ventilation.

Before the tea/coffee break, the main topic to be discussed will be Geological Time, including past attempts to measure the age of the Earth. After the break, (cups will be available, or some might choose to bring their own) there will be a video (15 minutes) about methods used for dating rocks and fossils.

Please feel free to bring along any rock or fossil specimens for appraisal. I'll be bringing samples of polyhalite (polysulphate) mined from Permian rocks about 4,000 ft. below ground. Best Wishes and stay safe.
John Waring

Venue: Saltburn Methodist Church, downstairs meeting room, Milton Street
