GA field trip to Charnwood Forest

June 20, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

This trip will examine the Neoproterozoic (Precambrian) and Cambrian rocks around Charnwood Forest. The morning will be spent viewing the Maplewell Group and Whitwick Volcanic Complex around Mount St Bernard Abbey, with a possible visit to the Bomb Rocks, before examining the older Blackbrook Group in Morley Quarry. In the afternoon we will visit Bradgate Park, and if there’s time, hunt Tychichnus in Newtown Linford Churchyard.

Attendees wishing to take the ‘BGS Keyworth tour’ on the Friday afternoon before hand (19/6/2020) should arrange their own accommodation and sign up to that event separately.
