Thornbury

Geology Next Meeting

Wednesday 22 January

Charles Hiscock will describe The Hills of Moher, which are a spectacular feature of the west coast of Ireland. They were laid down in a swamp during the Carboniferous period and now reach over 700 feet, exposing almost level cyclic bedding as well as incredible trace fossils.

After coffee, Les Strong will talk about Charles Lapworth and review the life of the man himself, the impact he had in solving some tricky problems, and describe his museum which some of us visited in November.
