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.

Forthcoming Events -

Thursday, 24 October 2019 - Next Meeting 1.30pm - Crown Inn, Monk Fryston

All, a meeting to discuss how we're going to organise future trips to ensure that more of our group will be able to attend. I’m sure David will bring the next film in the series we’ve been watching.

Tea & coffee will be there at £2 a cup – as long as we have at least 15!.

Hope to see you all there.
