Spring 2021 Newsletter
The Geology of Your Street
In our last edition of the newsletter, we had six delightful accounts of the geology in and around member’s
homes. To discover your local geology, it has been traditional to buy a printed 1:63,360/1:50,000 geological
map from BGS. They can be available flat or folded in blue covers. Many sheets have an associated memoir,
and these can also be purchased from the BGS shop, in person or online. Larger scale maps at 1:10,000 can
be bought but are very expensive.
With regard to geological maps, the BGS website now has interactive resources to entertain. From the Home
page, using the Discovering Geology tab and following the path Maps and resources and then Maps, the web
page below can be seen.
