Somerset Earth Science Centre


A day in the Mendips exploring Carboniferous exposures.

Start the day at the Somerset Earth Science Centre investigating the geological formation of the area followed by a visit to the enormous Whatley Quarry, and the afternoon exploring Tedbury Camp with its famous unconformity.  Solve the mystery of the missing sediments of more than 80 million years!

Only over 7s.

The price for this fieldtrip is £5 per family.  After this trip we are changing to a system of charging £2.50 per individual.  This will make it easier for us to keep track of numbers while still keeping the price low.
