Event details

Following the success of last year's field trip heading onto the Downs, this year, the South East Regional Group of The Geological Society is heading to the coast to look at the Chalk. 

The trip will start at Castle Hill Newhaven and work along a number of stops to Black Rock Marina in Brighton. The group will look at the Chalk stratigraphy, and at Newhaven its interaction with the overlying Palaeogene deposits. Along the cliffs and at Brighton, the group will look at the engineering works that have taken place at Black Rock.
