Geology Walk with Peter Kennett

Tuesday, 12th September 2023

2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

The Gatehouse


Tour by Peter Kennett, Sheffield Area Geology Trust

Meet at the Gatehouse of the Cemetery, Cemetery Avenue, Sheffield, S11 8NT

Rocks in the cemetery? No, not another pop festival among the tombs, but a peaceful walk around the other sorts of rock. Discover how well (or how badly!) the Victorian selected and carved their tombstones and how the memorials have fared since. Let the stones teach you about the evolution of the Earth itself, and of the British Isles in particular.
