100 Great Geosites

The UK and Ireland feature some of the most diverse and beautiful geology in the world, spanning most of geological time, from the oldest Pre-Cambrian rocks to the youngest Quaternary sediments. As part of Earth Science Week 2014, The Geological Society and partner organisations celebrated this unique geo-heritage by launching a list of 100 Great Geosites across the UK and Ireland.

Categories

We split the sites into ten categories, although many sites fit into more than one! The winner of the public vote in each category has pride of place as the ‘People’s Favourite’.
