Sunday 1st March - Leigh Delamere
Leigh Delamere Services occupy the site of an old quarry where an extensive rock face can still be examined by the public.  The interpretation board, located in front of the rock face, explains the history of the rocks, how they formed under the sea and why they are being protected for future research and general interest.
Meet at 10.00am at Travelodge Garden, Leigh Delamere Services, M4 Eastbound. Access is either from the minor road through Kington St. Michael (running from the A350 just north of Chippenham) and crossing over the M4, or from the M4 motorway, taking the Moto Leigh Delamere Services exit between junctions 18 (Bath) and 17 (Chippenham) –the site is beside the Travelodge on the eastbound side of the motorway, behind the Moto restaurant and shops. There is a footbridge across from the westbound side.
It is important for everyone to bring strong gloves to help clear the vegetation and if you would like to help cut down the vegetation and you have own saws, shears or secateurs please feel free to bring them along.
