SUMMARY PRELIMINARY PROGRAMME FOR YORKSHIRE GEOLOGY MONTH MAY 2016: A programme of events for the general public
Further details will be given in the next Yorkshire Geological Society Circular, to be distributed in April, and on the Society website: http://www.yorksgeolsoc.org.uk/
Sunday 1st May at 11.00. Auk and Chalk Walk at the Bempton Cliffs Reserve on Flamborough Head organised by the RSPB and accompanied by Paul Hildreth (YGS). Guided walks for bird watchers with an added geological input. How does the geology of the cliffs influence the nesting habits of several bird species? RSPB may make a small charge.
Monday 9th May at 19.00. The Roads of Glenroy. Talk by Bill Fraser organised by the Huddersfield GA at Greenhead College, Huddersfield.
Saturday 14th May at 13.15 for 13.30 start. Roundhay Park Geology Trail organised by the Friends of Roundhay Park and led by Bill Fraser. Start outside the Mansion House Visitor Centre, Mansion Lane, Leeds LS82HH. Free car parking. Public transport: First Bus: routes 2, 12. Public WC in Visitor Centre. The Trail consists of 10 locations where the rocks, structures and the fossils they contain can be used to show that the Park was once a shallow sea that became infilled by an advancing delta to become a tropical rainforest. There is also evidence of powerful earth movements that affected the area since the rocks were formed. Geology Trail booklet available for purchase. The walk is approx. 3 km and takes approximately 2.5 hrs. following a mixture of rough surfaced and unmade streamside and woodland paths which can be muddy and slippery after wet weather. Walking boots / strong shoes are recommended.
Saturday 14th May at 11.00 – 15.00. Rock and Fossil Road Show at the Treasure House, Beverley organised by Hull Geological Society. Bring along your rock, fossil and mineral finds to be identified by members of the Hull Geological Society. Learn more about what can be found locally; look at displays and talk to experts. Please note that no valuations can be given. There will be a hands-on craft activity for children of all ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Admission free.
Sunday 15th May. 'Rock around Ribblehead' organised by the Friends of the Settle Carlisle Railway and led by Bill Fraser. A 13km circular walk starting and finishing at Ribblehead Station over some rough ground. It is classed as Moderate as there is a steady climb onto the top of Blea Moor and participants need to suitably clad and shod for Pennine weather! FoSCL walks are free and all start and finish at stations and are timed to the train timetable as the aim is to encourage people to use the trains. (People can travel by other means if they so wish). This walk is timed to the train that departs from Leeds at 9.00 and arrives Ribblehead 10.28. Return would be via the 18.25 from Ribblehead although participants could return on an earlier train at 14.23. Full FoSCL walk programme and details can be found at www.foscl.org.uk/guided-walks
Sunday 15th May. Field Trip to Charnwood Forest organised by the Huddersfield GA. Details from Phil Robinson at email@example.com
Sunday 22nd May. Field Trip to Flamborough Head including afternoon boat trip from North Landing to view the geology from the sea, led by Paul Hildreth and organised by the York Philosophical Society. Meet at the car park at North Landing at 10.00. Further information from Rod Leonard at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 079 868 868 14. (Maximum capacity of the boat - 28 persons; approx. £10 per head charge for the boat, psaid direct to the skipper on the day.)
Saturday 28th May. Saltwick Bay and Whitby led by Dr. John Powell and organised by the Yorkshire Geological Society. Meet at 10.30am at the Abbey Car Park on Abbey Lane (post code YO22 4JR/NGR: NZ 904109). The car park is accessed from the A171 by turning into Hawsker Lane opposite Trailways Cycle Hire.
This is the Society’s contribution to Yorkshire Geology Month and will consist of a circular route from the Abbey via Saltwick Nab, Rail Hole and Whitby East Pier. Mudstones of the Whitby Mudstone Formation (Lower Jurassic) and overlying sandstones of the Saltwick Formation (Middle Jurassic) form the wave-cut platform and cliffs between Saltwick and Whitby. Look out for interesting ichnofossils, ammonites, plant fossils and sedimentary structures. Keen observers may even find footprints!
Sunday 29th May at 11.00. Auk and Chalk Walk at the Bempton Cliffs Reserve on Flamborough Head organised by the RSPB and accompanied by Paul Hildreth (YGS). Guided walks for bird watchers with an added geological input. How does the geology of the cliffs influence the nesting habits of several bird species? RSPB may make a small charge.
Tuesday 31st May at 10.30-12.00 and 13.30-15.00. Fossil Handling a Children’s University Challenge event at the Rotunda Museum, Scarborough organised by the Rotunda Geology Group. Contact Sue Rawson at email@example.com for further details.
New YGS Membership Secretary
From September 2015 Dr John Varker, a long-standing member and supporter of the Society and a current Council Member, has taken over as Membership Secretary. Council is most grateful to John for this. Subscriptions for 2016 are due on 1st January, and these will be collected by direct debit from the majority of members around that date. If you still pay by cheque or standing order please consider changing to a direct debit. This saves a great deal of work for the Society, is simpler for the member, and is fully guaranteed by the banking system. Please contact the Membership Secretary if you feel able to change to a direct debit, and/or can add a Gift Aid declaration to your membership – for which we can claim 25% extra from the government at no cost to the member.

YGS-Members Forum email "Listserv"
Courtesy of the national Joint Academic Computer Network the Society has a "Listserv" type email system "YGS-Members Forum" for rapid communication (e.g. about updates and changes in programmes and events) between the YGS officers and event organisers and the members registered with the system. It also allows individual registered members to communicate with other members. This is a secure system controlled online by each registered member once they have been registered by the YGS, and anyone can remove themselves from the system at any time.
If you are not yet registered with the YGS-Members Forum and wish to do so, or at least try it out, please send your email address and name to the Circular and Website Editor, Patrick Boylan, at P.Boylan@city.ac.uk.

British Geological Survey Memoirs for Yorkshire to download
In a major new development for the Society, the British Geological Survey (BGS) had made
available to the Society's website full facsimile copies (in PDF format, including all
illustrations) of some earlier Geological Survey Memoirs, listed below. These are now
available for downloading for personal, academic, educational, non-commercial research and
other non-commercial use, from the Yorkshire Geological Society website
http://www.yorksgeolsoc.org.uk/ only. All users must agree to the BGS terms and conditions
before downloading each Memoir.
Yorkshire Rocks and Landscape the popular
YGS Field Guide, Third Edition
famed for its scenic beauty and its rich industrial heritage, contains some of the most
interesting geology and scenery in
, from the moors to the coast, including the
Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors national parks. The influence of the geology on the
landscape and on the industrial development in the region is profound.
This book is a stimulating field guide to
twenty-one locations selected to give comprehensive coverage of the geology, minerals,
rocks, fossils and landforms of the area. Excursions vary from easy halfday walks to
longer outings. Some are in moorland areas such as the Craven Inliers and the Pennines;
others cover the
Coast, famous for its rugged beauty and natural history, and
coalfields adjacent to the major cities.
Aimed at beginners and more experienced
geologists, the book includes a general introduction to the areas geological
history, detailed location maps, a full glossary of terms, and details of local museums.
Yorkshire Rocks and Landscape will be used and enjoyed by all those interested in the geology and natural heritage of
this exciting and diverse region, especially the links between landscape and the

Important Notice to Members and others:Short
Communications: Proceedings and Circular/Web Site
publication of short papers is common amongst journals, particularly those published
weekly, monthly or bi-monthly, as a way of disseminating information quickly on topical or
contentious issues, exceptional new discoveries or major developments. Given its
publication schedule, the adoption of such a publication strategy is not appropriate for
the Proceedings. Nevertheless, as a way of encouraging the membership to make
more use of the Proceedings, and for that matter the Societys other vehicles
for publication, the Circular and web site, Council would welcome more short
communications. Short communications submitted to the Proceedings might
include anything for which it would be worth having a permanent published record, for
example descriptions of new and/or temporary exposures. Those intended for the Circular or web site could include more topical or newsworthy items, including brief
reports of field meetings, new fossil/mineral occurrences, photographs of interesting
geological features with a brief description or the work of RIGS groups. Short
communications to the Proceedings should not exceed two published pages,
approximately 2,000 words (or equivalents including figures) and will be subject to the
normal review and editorial procedures, although a Summary will not be necessary. Please
send your contributions in the usual manner to the Editors (see Instructions to
Authors in the PYGS as a general guideline).
For the A5 format of the Circular (and web site),
contributions should be 300-400 words, but can include colour photographs and figures;
these will also be subject to editorial review. These items should be sent to the Circular
Editor in the first instance (see back page of the Circular for details).
