Lifelong Learning 4 day course

Field Geology from the Malvern Hills to the Cotswolds
Tutor: Dr Nick Chidlaw
Two weekends in October: 6th, 7th and 13th, 14th
10.00 am – 5.00 pm each day

This highly scenic area spans the boundary between older folded rocks seen in much of Wales, and younger flatter rocks in southern England. Our study includes those from Precambrian to Jurassic age: metamorphics on the craggy Malverns, red desert strata in a cliff on the River Severn, and shelly oolitic limestone limestones (some formerly containing dinosaur bones) in Cotswold quarries.
No prior knowledge of geology or the locations is assumed. Attendees arrange their own transport and lunches. Meeting locations to be provided to those enrolled.
The course is organized 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 £122.00 (Concessionary fee available £98.00).
