Guided Geology Walk - Upper Soudley and the Blue Rock Trail

Sunday 17th October, 2021

A walk introducing the geology of the area and its effect on the landscape, flora and fauna, and local human development.

A 3km Geology Walk led by local Geologist Dave Green. The walk will take approximately 3 hours and involves one climb and no stiles.

Highlights include: A classic traverse through the steeply dipping Old Red Sandstone, Carboniferous Limestone and Coal Measures on the Eastern side of the Forest coalfield. Rocks are exposed along an old railway track, and in quarries and mines. There are some unusual geological features to debate their origin, as well as examples of all the rock divisions.

Park on the roadside at the western end of Upper Soudley.

The walk is free.  You can book tickets via Eventbrite from the 22nd September.
