Confirmed Field Trips 2023

  • Arun Valley Walk. Date to be confirmed, probably now going to be in 2024. Meet in front of Amberley Station at 1030, 3.5 miles, along the river bank and across fields, while there are few exposures the aim is to get an overview of the local geology and how the chalk is mapped, and various chalk features, and the profiles of the different chalk formations can be seen in the landscape. We will end up looking at the quarry faces in the station car park, in time to go to the Bridge PH or adjacent cafe at about 1300. Car parking in the station car park, or along Stoke Road.

  • The Geologists' Association holds a combined Ancillary Policy with Zurich Insurance Company through which our Society members are insured. On any field trip you are required to wear helmets and high visibility jackets in quarries. This is always advised. Goggles must be worn when hammering and suitable footwear be worn at all times.
