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.

Northumbrian Earth has also run a Geology Day in Berwick-upon-Tweed consisting of a series of lectures in the morning followed by a field trip in the afternoon. This was funded by the Raymond Williams foundation to support educationally and socially disadvantaged communities.

Talks and walks have also been run for the Berwick Wildlife Group and for the Berwick Ambassador Training.

  • "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."
