Victorian Geologists are back!
Victorian Geologists

Charles Darwin, Revd Dean Buckland, William Smith, Henry de La Beche, Mary Anning and Elisabeth Philpot are some of the eminent geologists who visited Robin Hood's Bay last December. They brought curios and fantastic exhibits and amazed hundreds of visitors with their great discoveries.

On Thursday 16th February some of them will come to Ravenscar, North Yorkshire and the Raven Hall Hotel for a thrilling afternoon (1 to 5pm). It's free and there's no need to book. Just come and be amazed. It will also be a great opportunity to have lunch or a cream tea and admire the fabulous views over Robin Hood's Bay.

In April, you will once again be able to meet with an eminent Victorian Geologist at Beck Isle Museum in Pickering. As part of a Fossil Fun Day held at the Museum, the Geology Trust has invited a Victorian Geologist with his Rock & Fossil Road-Show.

There will be two Fossil Fun Days with a famous Victorian Geologist in the Parlour and activities (plaster casting of fossils, colouring of Jurassic landscapes and dinosaurs and making your own plasticine dinosaurs) on Thursday 5th April and Thursday 12th April 2012 from 10 to 3pm. The Fossil Fun Days come free with the entrance fee for the Museum. Beck Isle Museum has plenty to offer, so make sure you make a day of it.

April will also see the start of this year's Events Programme. Fossil Walks and Beach Treasure Walks feature in the holidays, there are mid week rambles in Robin Hood's Bay and surroundings, longer walks for the more resilient in Glaisdale, Lealholm, Rosedale and Sandsend to name a few, field excursions to Filey and Yons Nab, Fossil Fun Days and the old favourite: the Rosedale Show. It'll be worth renewing your membership to get all these events and more for free. Enjoy!
