East Herts Visit 22-24th September 2017

Around a dozen amateur, with a smattering of professional geologists arrived in Martley for three days of tours, commencing Friday 22nd Sept. After showing them our pop-up display and taking some refreshments in the Dave Cropp room at the hall, I led them around a few of our sites. These included Martley Rock, the Nubbins, Scar Cottage (thanks Pam and Ian for opening it up so they could sit in unique surroundings to eat their packed lunches) then after lunch, Penny Hill sites–the main quarry, the Canyon, Lower House then back to the cars for 5pm.

On Saturday, Adrian Wyatt led the group on a full day trip along the Malverns, stopping off at several quarry and view sites.

On Sunday Ian Pennell went into the Teme Valley, to the Brockhill Dyke and to Southstone Rock, the major tufa deposit.
