Update on the next LGS field excursion to Garn Prys and Deganwy on

Sunday 24th June 2018

Apologies – the field excursion to Garn Prys and Deganwy has been cancelled because

so few people have signed up for this excursion.  (It seems that most LGS members

will be watching the football on Sunday instead of enjoying the great geology and

fine weather in North Wales!)

We do hope to run this excursion next year.

Sunday 8th July 2018 Park Hall Country Park, Stoke-on-Trent and Hulme Quarry Field

Excursion 

Leaders Maggie & Peter Williams:

The aim of the day will be to work out the geological history of the Park Hall Country

Park area based on the Hulme Quarry exposures of Triassic rocks.  The site is

designated as a national nature Reserve as well as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

You need to wear normal walking clothes and sturdy walking boots with good ankle

support.  You are advised to bring waterproofs, high-viz jackets and safety helmets.

You may find it useful to have the OS Map: Landranger Sheet 118.  The total walking

distance is about 2km.  Paths are public paths.  Most are well-maintained, but the

site is a disused quarry which is now partly overgrown with gorse, broom and birch

trees and criss-crossed with many small tracks.  You will be looking at exposed cliff

sections.

Meeting place

Directions: Hulme Quarry is located to the east of Stoke-on-Trent, about 1km north-

east of Longton. The site is best approached from the A520 (Weston Road). At Weston

Coyney, take the B5040 (Park Hall Road) for 1.5km and turn right into Hulme Road.

Drive past the “Fort” car park and take the next right into “Gulch” car park

(signposted).  There is parking for several cars here and public toilets.

Meet at Grid Reference SJ930447 in the “Gulch” car park at 10.30am.

The estimated time in the field will be 2 hours 30 minutes. 

Bring a packed lunch if you wish to stay in the Park Hall Country Park at the end of

the field excursion.  If you wish to visit a local pub for lunch there are two within easy

reach: The Candlesticks, Hulme, Stoke-on-Trent ST3 5BQ and The Red Cow, Ash Bank

Rd, Werrington, Stoke-on-Trent ST9 0DT.

At the end of this field excursion you may wish to take the opportunity to visit the

725-acre outdoor family attraction housing a shopping village, gardens and

woodlands at Trentham Gardens, Trentham Estate, Stone Rd, Stoke-on-Trent ST4 8JG.

To confirm that you would like to take part, please contact Maggie Williams email:

williams.maggiee@gmail.com or telephone: 07784 720 551. Please let Maggie know if

you wish to offer or request a lift.
