stop pressSouth Wales Annual Weekend Fieldtrip 2015

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF DATE
South Wales Annual Weekend 18-19 July 2015

This year Rockwatch will be setting off to explore a new region of Wales. We will be heading as west as you can go – to the Marloes/Dale peninsula in Pembrokeshire. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park displays a greater variety of geological features and associated landforms than any equivalent area of the same size in the British Isles, and you’ll be visiting it with experts to help you understand the geology. This is a very popular trip so register with Geraldine as soon as you can at rockwatchatga@btinternet.com
