Thornbury

Geology

This group is open to anyone with an interest in rocks, fossils, volcanoes, earthquakes etc., and no formal training in Geology is needed. We began in January 2017, meeting at 10am on the 4th Wednesday of each month in The Stuart Room in The Chantry. Currently we number about 30, and additional members will be welcome. We try to hold 2-3 talks each session with a drinks break in between talks. We charge £2 per session to cover room hire and refreshments.

Last year’s programme was varied, including presentations that included Rocks and fossils, Mt Etna, Minerals, and the Geology of the Mendips. There were also reviews of geology books, and we held one field trip to Aust Cliffs.

If you are interrested, or would like more information, please contact Les Strong on 01454 416045 or by email to Geology.
