Community Projects

Northumbrian Earth is involved in a variety of community activities to help make the fascinating geodiversity of Northumberland and the Borders accessible to all. Community events will be publicised here when they are set up.


Geodiversity Action Plan Walks

In 2010 Northumbrian Earth delivered a series of walks to celebrate the launch of the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Geodiversity Action Plan. These well received walks were funded by the Northumberland Coast AONB, with the aim of publicising the excellent work in the Geodiversity Action plan. They also initiated work to interpret the geology for both visitors and locals.

  • "Ian Kille is an absolute authority on the geology of Northumberland. His knowledge is unmatched, his presentation is perfect and his enthusiasm is unbridled. Ian has lead a series of walks for us along the Northumberland Coast AONB over the last two years and every walk has been immensely enjoyable, thoroughly entertaining and incredibly educational. He is able to explain complex geological sequences across enormous timescales to young and old alike and has piqued a geological interest in many that has kept the audience coming back for all of his walks."
