Riddlesdown Chalk Quarry
Event status:

Organised by the London Geodiversity Partnership in conjunction with the London Branch of the Open University Geological Society and City of London Corporation.

Date: Saturday 8 October

Time: 10am - 4pm

The large Riddlesdown Chalk Quarry south of Croydon in the North Downs is the best location to examine chalk in the London area. The London Geodiversity Partnership have decided to make the quarry the focus of its geoconservation efforts this year. We will be advised and assisted by the City of London rangers - and as ever, there will be an explanation of the geology of the site before we get down to work. We are very happy that Liam Gallagher, an expert on the chalk who knows the quarry well, has agreed to come along to talk to us.

The day will start promptly at 10am and finish about 4. We ask you to bring a hard hat, packed lunch, stout gloves and boots. City of London Corporation will supply tools and tea/coffee.
