The U3A Geology group meets on the second Wednesday of the month at the Friends Meeting House in Penrith.

It consists of a Beginners group which has been following a course in the basics of the subject for the last year and will continue with this during 2020.  It is intended that a new Beginners course will start in January 2021.

A second session runs on each Wednesday and is aimed at members who wish to continue in geology or new members who already have some knowledge and understanding of fundamental principles.  This ‘Advanced’ group deals with topics that are accessible to a wider audience and members of the Beginners group are welcome to stay on if they want to (after a short break between the two sessions).

In the summer we hold field trips instead of inside sessions and make use of the wonderfully varied geological landscape in Cumbria.  There is also the opportunity for taking part in longer residential excursions if demand is sufficient.

If you are interested in joining the ‘Advanced’ group (sessions from 3.15 to 4.30pm on 2nd Wednesdays), please contact me on either 01768 895743 or leave a message on 07816 769 918.  I will then call you in due course
