Geology Walk: Widdybank Fell for European Geoparks Week
Please note – booking is currently suspended for this event. We will reactivate bookings as soon as we are able to do so. If you have already booked for this event and wish to discuss a refund, please email us.
This is a joint event with Natural England, and also part of our new walking programme taking in some of the key geological features of the North Pennines AONB and UNESCO Global Geopark. Guided by some of our knowledgeable volunteers or our geology projects staff, the walks take place throughout the year, with approximately one walk a month from March to October. See the events page for other walks with starting points across the AONB.
This guided walk takes us along the nature trail to explore the unique geology of Upper Teesdale. Learn how it has shaped the landscape and created special habitats for rare species. Keep eyes peeled for fossilised sea creatures, abandoned mines and the unusual sugar limestone.
The walk will follow an easy, surfaced 3 mile route and wheelchair access can be arranged easily.
Please meet at Cow Green Reservoir car park (NY810309) and bring warm, weatherproof clothing and a snack.
