A 600 million year history of Cheshire and the UK

Monday 13 February 2017

Over the past 600 million years the UK has been in deep and tropical seas, covered in a forest and by ice, and in the middle of a desert. We will take a very quick look at the UK’s journey and life over the past 600 million years, and highlight some of the best places – locally – to see evidence of past environments.

Geologist Dr Kate Riddington worked in the Grosvenor Museum in Chester between 2004 and 2013 before moving to the Lapworth Museum of Geology at the University of Birmingham. She will shortly move to Ipswich Museum. Introduced to geoconservation (the conservation of geodiversity) in Cheshire she is still active locally; every summer she does a geology walk with ranger Martin James at Tegg’s Nose Country Park.

Talk begins promptly at 6.30pm, Vale Inn, Adlington Road, Bollington
