Front Cover of Rocks and Landscapes of Huddersfield book
Front Cover
This part of West Yorkshire reveals many contrasting landscapes. The present scenery is a reflection of how geological processes have moulded the original rock foundations into the hills and valleys of today. Explore with us the rock structures, minerals and weathering. Read about the marine fossils found around Huddersfield including the Brockholes fish. See pictures of the tree fossils found in our local quarries. This book contains a geological map of the Huddersfield district and cross sections as well as lots of sketches and photographs. ISBN 0-9532828-0-5. In 1998 the Huddersfield Geology Group received the Lasmo Geological Challenge Award for this book. To purchase the book contact us.              


We’ve had great fun helping out with the kids’ activities at the Tolson Museum this summer. Why not come and see their new geology exhibition?
