Summer of Heritage Guided Walk on Sunday - the Geology of Stockbridge

Geological walk with Beverly Bergman, Edinburgh Geological Society
The rocky gorge cut by the river between Stockbridge and the Dean Village is geologically important as it is one of the few localities in Edinburgh where exposed bedrock can be seen.  This walk provides an opportunity to see a range of geological features, including Carboniferous sedimentary rocks and igneous dykes. The walk will also include two 18th/19thcentury medicinal wells and a fine example of a Thomas Telford bridge.  Meet at 2pm on the bridge in Stockbridge at the crossroads, Saunders St.
£5  (£2 for members )  Booking essential
