Isle of Wight Weekender
Saturday April 5, 2014 to Sunday April 6, 2014
The Isle of Wight, although just a small island, is famously known as “Dinosaur Island”, being the most richest place in the UK for Dinosaurs, and home to a handful of new species. It is often featured on the TV with a host of various documentaries. Apart from Dinosaurs, the Isle of Wight has a remarkable diversity spanning the whole of the Cretaceous period. Some locations such as Alum Bay and Whitecliff Bay, you can see the transition of these beds in vertical strata. There are younger Oligocene deposits in the north that yields mammal remains, crocodile remains.
For all quarry visits hard hats, reflective jackets and suitable footwear are essential, some sites also require eye protection. Some sites will allow under 16’s under adult supervision but please check beforehand, the supervisor will also need to wear the appropriate safety gear. Members should appreciate that they are responsible for their own safety.
The society’s insurance is against 3rd parties.
With all field events please book with the field secretary at least 10 days in advance so we can cater for numbers.
