GeoWeek: Walk 600 million years in 20-minutes at the Brandon Marsh GeoWall – Sunday 5 May

May 5 @ 10:30 am 4:30 pm

GeoWeek: Walk 600 million years in 20-minutes at the Brandon Marsh GeoWall.

In just a few paces, visitors can walk through time from local volcanic rocks of 600 million years ago to newer limestone of only 145 million years old. Warwickshire’s varied geology tells a good story. It is collected together in the Geology Wall at the Brandon Marsh wildlife visitor centre. The wall was designed and built by members of the Warwickshire Geological Conservation Group (www.WGCG.co.uk).

Come any time from 10:30 amto 4:00 pm on Sunday 5th May 2019 and see the rocks and hear their story told by members of the Warwickshire Geological Conservation Group (WGCG).  They look forward to answering your questions.

• Puzzled by a rock or a fossil? Bring it along. See if we can tell you what it really is.

• Take the time to look at the two interpretation boards alongside the wall telling how the earth has changed in the last 600 million years.

Talk Times: 11.00 and 11.30 am, 12.00, 12.30, 1.30, 2.00, 2.30 and 3.00 pm. Standard entry charges to Brandon Marsh, WWT members free entry.
