O- Geology of Yorkshire
Geology, Landscape and Building Stones of Yorkshire
The area of study is the coast and countryside, towns, villages and churches. We consider how geology has influenced land forms, industry and buildings. Group members are invited to contribute their own knowledge of landscape and the natural world.
The group usually meets on the third Wednesday of the month to visit sites of interest within the county.
We use public transport and car-sharing depending on the area visited, meeting on site about 10.30 am and returning by late afternoon. Members should be prepared and suitably equipped to walk up to 4 miles in open country.
When field trips were not possible, we met on Zoom for presentations and virtual field trips about every two weeks on Wednesday mornings until June 2021. We have been meeting in person outside July to December and hope to continue that way in 2022.
