The Mendip quarries provide a rich and varied resource to look at sedimentary and igneous geology in a hands-on way. We are able to facilitate exploration of operating Andesite and Limestone quarries, plus areas of special geological interest created by old quarry works (i.e. De la Beche Unconformity and Tedbury Camp, in Vallis Vale). The programme for your visit will depend on the needs of your group, time allowed and numbers. Please call to discuss when you book a date with the Centre.
