Event description
'Reading the Rocks' events tell the story of the physical geological seascape from Tyne to Tees over time.

About this event

In partnership with Durham University, SeaScapes presents the next walk and talk for the 'Reading the Rocks' Project.

Reading the Rocks tells the story of the physical seascape from Tyne to Tees over time, from the Permian reefs to the eroding coast we live with today. The unique geology of the Tyne to Tees shores is of national and international importance.

Come and join the SeaScapes Team and Geologist Professor Dave Roberts in Seaham on Saturday 25th September 2021.

Dave will walk us along Blast Beach and talk us through the geological heritage, coastal evolution, and especially the legacy of mining and waste tipping on the beach post the industrial revolution.

This event will be held on the beach and will involve walking along a stony and rocky beach / shore. There is also a steep walk down on the beach. Participants are advised to wear suitable outdoor clothing and footwear.

SeaScapes is funded by the National Heritage Lottery fund. To find out more, please visit www.exploreseascapes.co.uk
