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 first meeting took place on Tuesday 12 March at The Crown Inn, Monk Fryston, where winter meetings (October - March) will take place at 13:30 for approximately 2 hours.

Summer meetings (April - September) will be field trips lasting most of the day to sites of geological interest within easy driving distance, meeting at 10:00 at The Eversley Centre in Sherburn for car share under usual U3A rules, unless otherwise advised.

Next meeting 10:00 9 April, Boston Spa Geology Trail, meet at Car Park beside the church.

Forthcoming Events -

Tuesday, 21 May 2019 - Field Trip to Otley Chevin Geology Trail 10.00am - Eversley Centre for Car Share

A two hour field trip to the Sandstone ridge at Otley Chevin.
Some interesting features as part of a pleasant 3km walk on fairly strenuous woodland and hilltop paths. Only suitable for those able to cope with several steep slopes, some quite long.
Unfortunately the site is not well maintained so some of the features are in poor condition, or even missing.
Journey from Eversley to East Chevin Quarry Car Park OS Grid Ref: 2121 4448 is 30 miles/40 minutes so car share = £15/car. See photo of car park entrance.
