Lifelong Learning 4 day course
Field Geology in Pembrokeshire (Part 1) 
Two weekends in October: 10th, 11th and 24th, 25th
10.00 am – 5.00 pm each day

The Pembrokeshire landscape differs from much of Wales in that it is largely unmountainous, with extensive areas forming plateaux lying below 183m (600 ft). This course will visit a number of key locations, mostly coastal and in the north of the county, examining rocks formed during Precambrian, Cambrian and Ordovician times.
The course is divided into two weekends to maximise safe tidal access and extent of rock exposures on beaches.
No prior knowledge of the area or geology is assumed.
Please note you will need to make your own travel and accommodation arrangements, with meeting times and places to be confirmed.  
The course is organised through Cardiff University. If carries assessment, which is very difficult to fail! Attendees usually find assessment on these courses useful for consolidating what they have learned.
