Field Trips

Field trips have been on hold since Spring 2020 due to COVID restrictions. With the easing of restrictions, official field trips are now being planned.  However, the restrictions will continue to change and any easing may have to be reversed.  Your committee will be monitoring the latest restrictions and will apply the rules as appropriate for each trip.  This may include cancellation or changing the dates and format of a trip at short notice. Mini guides have been written for individuals or small groups to use, as dictated by current (and ever changing) COVID restrictions.  These guides can be downloaded from: Publications – Mini Guides here on the website.

Non-members are always most welcome. Those attending field meetings do so at their own risk. Huddersfield Geology Group can accept no liability for injury, theft or loss however caused.

Please e-mail us for further details or contact Bob Appleyard at

There is a charge of £ 3.50 per person for each half day trip, and £7.00 for each full day trip

Mobile phone numbers for contacting the person in charge for each field trip will be available at the HGG meeting immediately before the event, but please note that some of these are not on the weekend immediately following the Monday evening meetings.

 Date Fieldtrip
 Saturday 19th June We are having an evening talk on Monday 10th May about Victoria Caves, near Settle. This will be followed up with a field trip to the caves on Saturday 19th June.  This will be our first official trip since COVID restrictions were applied in March 2020. Field trips will be permitted under the proposed easing of restrictions, as at March 2021.  Further details covering transport, social distancing and group sizes will be announced nearer the time. If the situation changes for the worst, we will simply re-plan. If you are interested in attending then please contact Bob Appleyard at
TBC Weekend Trip to the NE Coast at Tynemouth.  Study of Carboniferous exposures in the Whitley Bay area on Saturday, followed by Permian limestones and other exposures around South Shields on Sunday.

Guests from other organisations are welcome. However, if you are bringing or inviting guests it is an essential courtesy to inform the visit coordinator and Field Trips Committee Member – Bob Appleyard.

Numbers may be limited on some trips and regular HGG members will take priority.  As above, there is a charge for the field trips.  Some trips may attract extra costs such as travel, catering, admission charges and, in some cases, accommodation and these will be outlined to members in advance, wherever possible.
