Local Geological Sites –
Condition Monitoring 2020
After the regrettable 2-year hiatus, the Conservation Committee planned a programme of monitoring for
2020 and recruited willing volunteers. Despite Covid-19, 10 sites were monitored and many thanks to
members who have submitted their reports, photographs and travel claims.
We have started on the process of publishing edited versions of the monitoring reports on the website. At
the moment there are 42 of these ‘Resurveys’ and so if you have taken part in LGS monitoring over the last
four or five years then go onto the WGCG website to see the results of your labours. The link
https://lgs.wgcg.co.uk/LoGS-list.html will take you right place.
There are still approximately 30 sites which are due to be monitored over the next two years but some of
the larger quarries are difficult to gain access to, for health and safety reasons. If you would like to know
what is involved in monitoring, then please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you
an information pack.
Also, conditions permitting, we hope to restart some clearance work on LGS, where the monitoring surveys
have shown deterioration, for example through vegetation growth. Again, carrying out this work depends
on members volunteering. Plans for proposed clearance work will be posted on the website and via emails.
