Event type:
Field trip, Geology walk
Organised by:
Earth Science Week 2017
Greenwich Park, London
Event status:

As part of Earth Science Week, the London Geodiversity Partnership, supported by Friends of Greenwich Park, will be leading a Geotrail around Greenwich Park on Wednesday 11 October 2017 at 10.30am.

The walk starts from the Thames Path at Greenwich, through the Old Royal Naval College (formerly Royal Hospital) and past Queen’s House to enter Greenwich Park at Jubilee Gate. The Park is famous for the Meridian but is also interesting for its geology. Within the park four different geological strata are represented with two others underlying the area closer to the Thames. This will be explained as well as aspects of how this area has been restless in the past although all seems quiet now. The influence of the geology on some of the features seen such as the steep slope, springs and fine views will be explained.

The trip is about 5 km long, mostly on metalled paths but there are some steep slopes. There will be a lunch stop at The Pavilion Tea House and the trip should finish by about 3pm close to Greenwich town centre and public transport.
