Uxbridge Rock Show Online Available from 1 March 2021

The Harrow & Hillingdon Geological Society (HHGS) have taken their annual Uxbridge Rock Show Online this year. We congratulate them and are pleased to be able to showcase their actual show that took place in February 2020. Whilst not particularly about London Geology, the content supports the National Curriculum and also provides Earth Science for everyone. The listener is guided around the Rock Show by one of the HHGS members, Joan Walters.
