Welcome to the website of
the Westmorland Geological Society
Due to the 2020-21 'Covid' restrictions, we are delivering our LECTURE PROGRAMME on ZOOM. Members will be emailed details prior to the lecture. Visitors should register their interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org We have an additional lecture on the 21st of April 2021. It will be given by Prof Richard Worden of Liverpool University. His lecture is entitled The Geology of Carbon Capture and Storage. Go to NEWS for more details.
The Society is open to anyone who is interested in Earth Sciences. No prior knowledge of the subject is required. Non-members can attend an event for a small fee (£3.00).
There is a winter programme of lectures in Kendal, on the third Wednesday of each month, and tutorials on the fourth Tuesday of the month (presently suspended). In the summer, excursions (fieldtrips) are organised, to places of geological interest. All are within a reasonable distance of Kendal. For details of the events that have been arranged for this year, please use the EVENTS link on the left or click here.
The PAST EVENTS link on the left gives brief details of past excursions, lectures & tutorials. They are not a complete record as the society publishes annual ‘Proceedings’ (free to members) which include illustrated write-ups of lectures and fieldtrips for that year, dating back to our founding in 1973. Tutorials began in January 2018, with a small charge to cover costs. They are advertised at lectures and by email to members. Visitors are welcome. They are generally aimed at beginners, though may build on previous tutorials, and are led by society members who are generous in sharing their knowledge.
