Event type:
Field trip, Lecture, Evening meeting
Organised by:
William Smith Bicentenary
Sherborne Castle
Event status:

In the year 2015 we celebrate the bicentenary of William Smith’s map of England and Wales. The Dorset Group of the Geologists’ Association and the Wessex Cephalopod Group have organized a meeting to celebrate William Smith's work and the part played by Dorset Geology.

The event will comprise four days of field trips to sites (some normally not available) mostly in the Middle and Lower Jurassic. An evening program will be arranged including visits to private displays, talks and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast.

The meeting will honour John Hannes Callomon (1928-2010). The work of the Wessex Cephalopod Club was directed and enthusiastically undertaken by the late John Callomon and it is to his credit that many refinements have been made to the rocks displayed on Smiths Map.


The programme is now available to download from the box to the right.


There is currently a waiting list in operation for the event. Please contact Robert Chandler and John Whicher on [email protected] for more information.
