Welcome to the website of
the Westmorland Geological Society
Due to the 2020-21 'Covid' restrictions on meeting size, we are delivering our LECTURE PROGRAMME on ZOOM. Members will be emailed details prior to the lecture. Visitors should register their interest by emailing email@example.com We are also running ad hoc mini-excursions for up to 6 people (details will be circulated to members). Tutorials are suspended for now.
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. In the summer, excursions (filedtrips) are organised. These are 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 meant to be a complete record as the society publishes annual ‘Proceedings’ (free to members) which include illustrated write-ups of all lectures and fieldtrips for that year, dating back to our founding in 1973. Tutorials began in January 2018 as an ‘extra’ activity, so there is 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.
