August 2019 Newsletter

Back to Geology

The Geology group meets in two different ways. It has field trips led by Prof Doug Robinson taking advantage of the abundance of places in the Mendips showing the variety of rocks and soils in the area. These usually take place about once a month. Sometimes we have the additional advantage of professor Chris King when he is free. In addition, we usually have indoor meetings at the Wookey Hole Village Hall on the first Friday afternoon of the month where members as well as our professors give illustrated talks.
Below is a sample of what has been presented and what will so far be taking place:
