A guide to geological fieldwork in Devon
This register has been compiled by Devon County Council in partnership with Natural England, the Devon RIGS Group and with funding support from The Curry Fund of the Geologists’ Association.
The Educational Register of Geological Sites is designed to encourage the educational use of Devon’s fascinating and diverse geological and geomorphological heritage.
The register includes a mix of text, sketches, maps and photographs of approximately 90 geological sites throughout Devon which are considered suitable for educational use. The register can be used in the planning of fieldwork trips, provide a stimulating way to teach and learn about the evolution of Devon’s landscape through geography, geology and science in the National Curriculum.
This information also is useful for people with a keen interest in geology.
