Field Trip Description

If you have not yet booked and paid at the group rate, please download and complete the Booking Form

This trail runs from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth. Steaming through geological time on the Severn Valley Railway. In the comfort of a railway carriage, you will encounter landscapes created in hot, dry deserts, steamy tropical swamps and exceedingly cold Ice Age conditions. You will see how the underlying rocks and the erosive effects of the river have influenced the landscape.

The plan is to arrive at Kidderminster to catch the 10:25 train which arrives at Bridgnorth at 11:34. After a leisurely lunch and maybe a stroll around the town we will return on the 14:45 arriving back at Kidderminster at 15: 52.

We need a party of 15 or more adults to qualify for a group discount on this trip (£12.95 instead of £15.50 for adults).

Important Notice: Bath Geological Society Insurance

Each person attending a field meeting does so on the understanding that he/she attends at his/her own risk. The Bath Geological Society has Public Liability Insurance Cover for field and indoor meetings, but Personal Accident Cover and Personal Liability Cover remain the responsibility and personal choice of the participant.

There may be an element of appropriate cover included in house insurance or in travel insurance: although Bath Geological Society activities are not particularly dangerous members are advised to check whether exclusions apply to activities in which they plan to participate in case they wish to arrange further cover. An annual travel insurance may be the best solution for any member who regularly attends field events: this again is a matter of choice.

Please note however that all members participating in overseas events will be required to have travel insurance for the duration of the event: this is so that participants are covered for Medical, Repatriation and Personal Liability expenses. The Personal Accident element remains the personal choice of the member and again members are advised to check exclusions so that they can make an informed decision about the cover they want.
