Extreme Past Climates of North Wales, Red Wharf Bay, Anglesey.

Sunday 18th March 1400-1630.

The field excursion to Red Wharf Bay on Anglesey will illustrate two of the very varied climates experienced by North Wales in the geological past. About 350 million years ago, the UK was characterised by shallow, tropical seas with abundant marine life including coral reefs. By contrast, about 20,000 years ago, North Wales was gripped by an Ice Age. The excursion will examine the geological products of these two episodes in geological history and show how the geology provides the evidence for extreme climate changes in the past.

Meet at the car park outside The Old Boat House (close to the Ship Inn) at Red Wharf Bay.

This event is free of charge.

Important information
The excursion will take c. 2.5 hours. It is a pleasant walk over rough ground (no climbing or scrambling) but participants should be suitably equipped (tough footwear, warm clothes, waterproofs) regardless of the weather forecast.
