Geo-events for 2023

Mine Walk

The first of the geowalks for 2023 have now been published on the events page for Northumbrian Earth.

As last year, these walks are all bookable to ensure that the number of people attending is manageable so that I can make it as good an experience as I can for everyone. The geowalks start on the Northumberland Coast, celebrating the geodiversity of the Northumberland Coast AONB. As we head into August these will be mixed in with some walks further north on the coast exploring the glorious landscape and geology of the Berwickshire Coast.  

As always there will be many fabulous rocks and fossils to find all set in the glorious land and seascape of the AONB and the Berwickshire Coast. In addition there will be a walk suported by Sunderland Council for the Heritage Open Days which I am leading, exploring the geology of Bishopwearmouth which includes the epic concretionary limestone. You can find all the details of these walks in the geowalk section

More walks will be added as the summer progresses with a schedule of walks going on into October.

The new, fully updated edition of the Northumberland Coast Rocks! including a new set of maps and artwork, is still available. To order a copy just email me and payment can be sorted either by bank transfer or by cheque. I also anticipate having the 2nd edition of the Berwick Coast Rocks! book out during the summer.

  • "Ian is an ethusiastic geologist and if you go on enough of his walks you soon will be too! Although I have visited the Northumberland Coast many times before, learning about its geology allowed me to see it from a very different perspective. Ian was an enagaging and entertaining guide and as a result of his walk I was able to understand more about this fascinating area."
