Description

Name of event: Wellington Spring Festival – Geology of The Ercall

This event starts in Wellington Market Square and will introduce you to The Ercall Nature Reserve. At the Ercall car park, the group will be joined by Andrew Jenkinson of the Shropshire Geological Society who will lead a tour of the reserve and its internationally renowned quarry area.

The Ercall falls within arguably the most geologically varied 100sq km in the World (OS National Grid SJ60). The Shropshire Geological Society are currently promoting this diversity in their project entitled “Rock Around The Wrekin”.

Start / End Time: Full walk starts at 2:00pm from Market Square. The Geology Tour will begin at 2:30pm from The Ercall car park (by the M54). The finishing time will be approximately 4:30pm (Ercall car park) and 5:00pm (back in Market Square).

Please note: The tour will include steep gradients in places and wearing sturdy footwear is recommended.
