If you have ever walked along the beach and wondered how the incredible rock formations were created in our local cliffs or you delight in the simple geometric beauty of crystals and fossils, you now have the opportunity to join our Geology group to find out more. Meetings will be held inside in the winter and outdoors on beaches or in quarries during the summer. We will be learning how to identify the rocks you find. We will also cover subjects like crystals, mineral ores and fossils. We have plenty of space for new members.
The Geology group meet on the 3rd Friday morning of each month from 10.00 - 12.00 pm in Bittaford village hall.
