Wednesday 11 October at 10.30am
Geotrail around Greenwich Park (during Earth Science Week), led by members of the London Geodiversity Partnership supported by the Friends of Greenwich Park

conduit houseThe Park is famous for the Meridian but is also interesting for its geology. Within the park four different geological strata are represented with two others underlying the area closer to the Thames. This will be explained as well as aspects of how this area has been restless in the past although all seems quiet now. The influence of the geology on some of the features seen such as the steep slope, springs and fine views will be explained . The trip is about 5 km long, mostly on metalled paths but there are some steep slopes. There will be a lunch stop at The Pavilion Tea House and the trip should finish by about 3pm close to Greenwich town centre and public transport.

Meet 10.30am at the Cutty Sark on the Thames Path and walk up through the Park to the top and back again to join the Thames Path. We will look at points of geological interest en route.

The walk is free but you will need to book (please reserve your place by emailing: Further details will be sent on registration.
