Everyone taking part in any geowalk does so at their own risk. The Geological Society assumes no responsibility for anyone undertaking a geowalk. The Society cannot be held responsible for any accident, injury or loss occurring as a result of any geowalk or in connection with travel to or from a walk, however caused.

Participants are reminded that outdoor activities frequently need specialist equipment (boots, waterproofs, etc.) and the Society cannot provide these. Participants are responsible for assessing their own risk, the safety of themselves and their guests and the suitability of any equipment used. Please consider any medical conditions that may affect participants’ ability to undertake a walk.
