Saturday 2nd July.  Starts 10am from Pendower Beach, Roseland Peninsula.  The Devonian tectonics and sedimentation of Gerrans Bay – in the footsteps of Lind Hendriks - Dr Robin Shail (Camborne School of Mines, University of Exeter). 

Lind Hendriks, the subject of a RGSC lecture by Jenny Bennett in 2021, provided a visionary interpretation of the large-scale tectonics of south Cornwall in the 1930s. The field trip will explore some of her localities and provide a contemporary overview of Devonian stratigraphy, sedimentology, structural geology and plate tectonic processes.
