SWGA Field Trip - Martley, Herefordshire
WhenSaturday, 29 Apr 2017
WhereMeet at 10:00 am at the Crown public house (WR6 6PA) at the crossing of the B4204 and B4197 in central Martley (map)
DescriptionLeader: John Nicklin, Teme Valley Geological Society Meet at 10:00 am at the Crown public house (WR6 6PA) at the crossing of the B4204 and B4197 in central Martley. On this return visit to Martley we will be seeing the Carboniferous, Permian and Quaternary. It will be a drive and walk excursion so it would help if we could double- up at the meeting place due to limited parking at one site. There will be a few shortish walks, a couple of which are uphill and the slopes may be muddy. We may return to Martley at lunchtime where lunch could be taken at the pub (to be confirmed closer to the event).
