Led by Norman Dutton, A guided geological tour of Banbury town centre (approx 1 hour) Tuesday 7th May, Evening, Banbury, Meet at Town Hall for 7 pm No need to book ahead. This tour will take you round many of the buildings in Banbury, Oxfordshire, which have used natural stone in their construction. The rocks are mostly of Jurassic age and reveal what the area was like over 170 million years ago. Their high fossil content means that you will probably see more fossils here than on a visit to the Jurassic Coast.

The tour will last around 1 hour and end at St. Mary’s Church. It is offered free by the Warwickshire Geological Conservation Group as part of GeoWeek, a national initiative to introduce members of the public to geoscience.
