Details of the walk:

We will start from Bournstream, walking up to the top of Nibley Knoll, before descending to North Nibley for lunch at the Black Horse (where there are picnic tables for those who have packed lunch and will hopefully buy a drink). After lunch we will walk along to the church and then down to the Severn Vale at Daisy Farm, Howley and back to Bournstream

Special areas of interest:
The walk is designed to show you the layer-cake nature of local Jurassic geology, and the effect of different rock types on the scenery, The stepped nature of the scenery is closely related to the underlying geology and is impressively demonstrated here 9 (see photo). Besides some wonderful views, we will be able to see outcrops of most of the rock types and their contained fossils and appreciate the uses to which they have been put.
Additional items you need to bring on this walk:
A hand lens (or jeweller’s loupe) would be useful to examine rocks and fossils at close range
Additional costs required:
Lunch and’/or a drink in the Black Horse
Please note the following information for this walk:
  • We will be stopping en-route for a meal in a pub
