The Geology of Badsey & the Surrounding Area

7.30 pm

Badsey Community Sports & Social Club & via Zoom

Alan Eames will present the sixth Richard Phillip Memorial Lecture.  Badsey has moved a lot over the millennia – from below the equator to where we are now. Some basic geology will be covered, with a bit about earthquakes and volcanoes (why don’t we have any, could we ever?), what is actually underneath our feet, and why does stuff move around all the time even though very slowly.  Why do Badsey’s stones etc have the form they do, where did they come from? And what happened to all the stuff once above us and no longer there? Why is there a Cotswold escarpment and why is Bredon Hill... over there?  We shall see!
