What we plan to do in 2018-2019

This group explores how our planet was formed and is still evolving.  We discover how landscapes have been shaped, how mineral resources are found, and how so many features of our dynamic earth are inter-related.  This is a study that makes travel and landscape infinitely more interesting.

We have regular meetings (usually around 3 times per month during September to June) for presentations and discussions, as well as occasional half-day or full-day external visits and field trips, and also a longer multi-day field trip in the summer. Past field trips have included visits to local places (such as Walton-on-the-Naze, Bawdsey, Ipswich, Orford and the Orwell River shore), and longer trips to places further afield (including the Peak District, Antrim, Anglesea, the Jurassic coast of Dorset, Pembrokeshire, Snowdonia, Northumbria, the Yorkshire coast, west Cornwall, and most recently the Isle of Wight).
