4-5th and 18-19th June - Field Geology in Pembrokeshire (Part 2)

Lifelong Learning 4 day course
Field Geology in Pembrokeshire Part  2 (independent of Part 1)
Two weekends in June: 4th, 5th, 18th, 19th
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 coastal locations in the south of the county, examining rocks formed during Silurian, Devonian and Carboniferous 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 and please note that Part 2 is independent of Part 1 run last autumn – anyone who wishes to enrol on Part 2 will not have had to do Part 1 first. 
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. It carries assessment, which is very difficult to fail! Attendees usually find assessment on these courses useful for consolidating what they have learned.
Tuition fee is £152.00  (concessionary fee available £122.00).
Enrolments can be made by ‘phoning 029  2087  0000  or on website
