Speaker(s): Liam Herringshaw BSc PhD FHEA
From dales and moors to vales and shores, the landscape of Yorkshire is diverse and splendid. In this half-day class, we’ll look at the geology and geography beneath the historic county. Why are there limestone pavements in the Yorkshire Dales? What is Millstone Grit? And why is Holderness the fastest-eroding coastline in Europe?
This is a partner class to ‘Exploring the Landscape of York’. No geological or geographical qualifications are required, just an interest in the landscape.
This course will be delivered via Zoom. Students joining our online courses would need access to a computer, laptop or tablet with a microphone (essential) and a webcam (desirable) as well as a reliable broadband connection.
