WGCG have designed and erected interpretation panels which describe the local geology in an accessible way to the general public at the following locations:

 

“Parkridge”
Brueton Park, Solihull

The Group was funded by the Local Heritage Initiative Fund to produce geological interpretation boards and displays of the geology of Warwickshire at the Parkridge Centre in conjunction with the Warwickshire Wildlife Trust.

Location: Parkridge Centre, Brueton Park Solihull, Warwickshire B91 3HW.


“Wolston”
Wolston Village Green

As part of an Aggregate Levy Sustainability Fund supported project, an interpretation board has been installed on Wolston Village Green. This illustrates the environment that existed in the area about 500,000 years ago. See an article from our 2007 spring newsletter for more about this panel.

Location: Main Street, Wolston CV8 3HJ.

Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve

As part of an Aggregate Levy Sustainability Fund supported project, an interpretation board has been installed at Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve.

“Ryton
Pagets Pool, Ryton Pools Country Park, Bubbenhall

As part of an Aggregate Levy Sustainability Fund supported project, an interpretation board has been installed at Ryton Pools Country Park overlooking Pagets Pool. This illustrates the environment that existed in the Bubbenhall area about 500,000 years ago.

See an article from our 2006 autumn newsletter for more about this location.
