Carboniferous Rocks at Scremerston, Berwick-Upon-Tweed

Outdoor Event, 10.30am

Jonny Imber from Durham University will lead this visit to the spectacular coastal exposures of 330 million year old Carboniferous rocks at Scremeston on the north Northumberland coast.

The rocks here are justifiably famous for their folding and faulting of Carboniferous cyclothems, and these will be the main focus for the trip.

The exposed strata also contain abundant examples of brachiopods, corals, crinoids and trace fossils.

Meet at the car park above Cockburnlaw Beach, about 1 mile east of Scremerston village (grid ref GR026 486).
