RIGS - Regionally Important Geological and Geomorphological Sites

RIGS groups aim to identify, survey, protect and promote geological and geomorphological sites within their areas. RIGS are selected for their educational, research, historical and aesthetic value and some sites already have SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) status.

The nationwide organisation UK RIGS ( has set up twelve sites of exceptional educational value. We are very fortunate in the West Country in that one of those sites is in Somerset - Tedbury Camp and Vallis Vale -

I am leading a field trip to Tedbury Camp and Vallis Vale for the Bath Geological Society on Saturday 21st July. Please contact the secretary if you are interested in joining us -
