Geodiversity

A Geodiversity Action Plan contributing to the enrichment of the environment of Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull through conserving and managing its geodiversity – landscapes, rocks, fossils, minerals and soils for the benefit of all.

The Warwickshire Geodiversity Action Plan is being developed for the County of Warwickshire, the City of Coventry and the Metropolitan Borough of Solihull.

The region’s varied rock formations and landscapes bear witness to an epic journey across the face of the Earth spanning six hundred million years during which the British Isles slowly moved from a position near the South Pole to arrive at today’s location in the northern hemisphere.

The constant motion and shifting of continental plates over our planet’s fluid interior is attributed to plate tectonics; a drifting of the Earth’s continents that continues today.
