Leader: Ben Johnson
Meet: 10.30 Gilsland Spa Car Park, NY636676
Rescheduled to 20th August
A look at the Upper Border Group, part of the Lower Carboniferous. A deep gorge is cut by the River Irthing exposing alternating sediments. We can also walk around to the remains of the Popping Stone NY 6350 6812. If time permits, we can drive up to Crammel Linn waterfall (Parking NY63616980) and better see the effects of the Gilsland Fault Belt. Steep paths, slippery when wet. Fossil hunting possibilities in river boulders.
The organizer apologises for the postponement of this event due to being out of the country.
CGS will look if it is possible to re-schedule this for later in the year.
