The North West Corner Uncovered – A Geowalk with Jersey Uncovered’s Nicky Mansell

Starting at L’Etacq we will be looking at the features which show us that sea level and climate change is nothing new and the anthropocene (the age of man) is upon us. We will start by examining a major geological boundary marking over 200 million years of rock formation.

If we are lucky the neolithic forest remains may be seen on the beach. We then take the steep path up on to the Les Landes headland past the bunkers and guns from the occupation and to the Pinnacle with its neolithic, chalcolithic and roman remains and finally across to one of Jerseys mesolithic sites where many flints have been found, This is the most dramatic coastline in Jersey and gives you great views of the cliffs and also the other islands. The walk is 2 and a half hours long and is quite steep in places so requires a reasonable level of fitness as well as good walking shoes or boots.

Cost : £10 per person, children free.

The exact meeting point and times will be given on booking.
