Aber Geology Weekend 2023

The Excursions
We are going to look at the fossiliferous Devonian Limestones (Corals and Stromatoporoids) and Variscan structures in the beaches and cliffs around Torquay, with a quick visit to the contact between the Dartmoor Granite and Devonian country rocks. Probably a couple of mystery stops along the way. All to be finalised following further research.

We will be staying at the Dartmoor Lodge Hotel, Peartree Cross, Ashburton, TQ13 7JW. Tel 01364652232. Mention you are part of Malcolm Butler’s group.

Rates are £90/ night for 2 people in doubles or twins, £75/night for single occupancy of doubles (not sure they have any single rooms).
This is for B&B. Evening meals (3 courses) are an extra £30 per person (less if you don’t have 3 courses). We’ll need to let them know in advance how many are going to have dinner (but closer to the date!)
Credit cards are required to hold the booking, but no amount is taken until we arrive. Cancellations may be made at no charge up to 48 hours before the arrival date.
