Walk and talk with the Geology Trust!

After an incredibly busy summer of fossil and beach treasure walks, energetic Sunday guided walks, open days and the Rosedale Show, North East Yorkshire Geology Trust is about to settle indoors with talks and project work but will take you on five last guided walks in October.

On Tuesday 5th October from 2 to 3pm at Saint Catherine's Hospice (Throxenby Lane, Scarborough), Stuart Swann will give a talk entitled Ravenscar to Scarborough – The Big River. During the Middle Jurassic, this area was part of a river system flowing through a lush tropical landscape and out to sea just to the south of where Scarborough is today. The talk explores the river and its plant and animal life.
