A Walk on the Chalk. NOW FULL. Sun 8th March

This walk is FULLY BOOKED but you may wish to join the reserves list. Come and join Haydon Bailey (Geological Adviser to the Chiltern Society and Chairman of the Herts Geological Society) who will lead us on a fascinating walk on the edge of the Chilterns including a visit to the perimeter of Kensworth Quarry at the top of the Ver valley.
We are expecting to see the underlying geology and how this affects the birth of a chalk stream and influences water flow through the chalk and down the valley. Haydon will also seek to prove that not all chalk is the same! To join the walk please email haydon.bailey[at]btconnect.com or call him on 07885 596692.

Meet by National Trust Centre (north side by the brass map) ready to walk at 9.30am. https://goo.gl/maps/29agGXRzcm4AT8g46

The walk is expected to take 3 – 3.5 hours. Please come in suitable footwear, some sections will be steep and may well be muddy. Carrying a warm drink and a snack is advisable.
