|Saturday 21st August 2021. Victoria Caves, Attermire Scar and the Langcliffe Lime Kilns||The primary aim is to visit Victoria Caves. However, along the way we will cover limestone ‘factories’ and deposition, Karst landscapes, mid Craven fault and mineralisation. The day will end with a visit to the Langcliffe Lime Kilns and an overview of the industrial processes and calcium chemistry. The main field trip is on tracks, paths and some rough and slippery ground, especially in and around Victoria Caves. We’ll be walking about 3.5 to 4 miles with some short but fairly steep climbs. Please wear appropriate footwear, dress for the weather and bring a helmet. Cafes and toilets in Settle before and after the trip. Further details on transport and timing will follow for those attending.|
|Saturday 2nd October. 2021. Peak District Volcanics||Previous field trips have touched on this topic, but as far as I’m aware we have never had a trip dedicated to The Peak volcanos. Geology maps of the area show lavas, tuffs and igneous intrusions. The aim is to identify these in the field and discuss the origins and mechanisms of these features. Further details will follow in due course.|
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.
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.
