Geology Rocks!

Mail Address

malham.pngThe group meets monthly for discussion, presentations, films/videos, and field trips.

We are lucky enough to live amidst some of the best geology in the country, if not Europe.

Join us to explore it and understand what lies beneath our feet, how our landscape was formed and why it looks the way it does.

Please be sure to tick the Geology Rocks! box on the Groups page and save changes, so you get all the latest news.

Our meetings take place on rolling day/4-5 week basis as alternate indoor/outdoor activities. Indoor meetings take place at The Old Girls School, Kirkgate, Sherburn-in-Elmet at 10:30 for approximately 2 hours.

An annual Programme is circulated to members and is available on request from the Group Leader.

Outdoor meetings will be visits to venues of geological interest, or field trips lasting most of the day to geological sites within reasonable driving distance, meeting at The Eversley Centre in Sherburn for car share under usual U3A rules, unless otherwise advised.
