As many members will know, Haydon Bailey of the Hertfordshire Geological Society (HGS) has given several talks to WGCG over the years, so when he reached out to WGCG to assist in planning a weekend field trip to Warwickshire we were keen to assist. After discussing several options forwarded by WGCG, HGS decided that a trip to Blockley brick pit to collect fossils from the Jurassic Charmouth Mudstone, led by WGCG geologist Jon Radley, would be ideal for Saturday and a day looking at the Triassic Arden sandstone, led by WGCG geologist Stuart Burley, would be good for Sunday. Thanks to Jon and Stuart for taking the time to plan their itineraries, undertake some site clearance prior to the visit of HGS, and lead the trips on the day
