Beneath our feet: the geology of Maidenhead
Animals like these once roamed the Thames Valley and before them, the dinosaurs, on rocks formed when Maidenhead lay under a vast, shallow sea. This talk is all about the geology that shapes our landscape.

About the Event
Animals like these once roamed the Thames Valley and before them, the dinosaurs, all in a landscape shaped by the geology laid down millions of years ago when Maidenhead lay under vast, shallow seas.
Find out more at this fascinating Wild Maidenhead talk by expert John Ashford, 'Beneath our feet: the geology of Maidenhead'. John will help you understand what links the nature reserve in the old brick works at Malders Lane, the toads’ favourite lake at Summerleaze gravel pits and the rich sward of orchids and wildflowers on the chalk slopes at Cock Marsh - the geology which has given rise to their existence, a subject on which most of us give barely a thought. It starts at 7.30pm at Braywick Nature Centre - free for paid-up members of Wild Maidenhead (£5 a year covering all our activities, payable online at www.wildmaidenhead.org.uk/join-now) or we suggest a £3 donation on the night.
