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.

The first meeting of the Geology Rocks! group will take place in the upstairs function room at The Crown Inn, Monk Fryston, LS25 5DU at 13:30.
Members are encouraged to bring along any rock samples they may have, for general discussion and an attempt at identification.
We will also view the second video in the BBC Earth Story series, and prepare for our first field visit to Boston Spa riverside, following the Geology Trail there, so that we may better understand what we will see on our visit..

Meetings from April to October will be field visits, beginning with fairly basic local ones before venturing further afield and more complex in subject.
