Fieldwork at Potton

A second educational resource, based on the Scout Hut Quarry, Potton (585KB PDF), will be of particular interest to GCSE and A-Level Geology students. It introduces the concepts of observing, sketching, measuring and describing rock sections in the field.


† Please note that Ledburn Quarry is no longer accessible to the public. An updated Education Pack is in preparation and will be available here when completed.
