Field Trip Description

A visit to both Tor Woods (just east of Wells) & Wookey Hole Caves.

Tor Woods is classified a Special Landscape Feature by Mendip Council and we will have the opportunity to examine an exposure which provides insights into the famous Wells springs.

At Wookey Hole we will use a new access tunnel to explore the 20th Chamber of the caves which features what is regarded as the best example of fluting in the UK due to their unusual extent and size.

Please register your attendance by the end of January latest.

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.
