Fletcher Club field trip to Noel Shore

Members of the Fletcher Geology Club enjoyed perfect weather for a field trip to the Walton area on 15 September. Led by Rob Raeside, the group visited Rainy Cove to see the folded Carboniferous rocks, the Triassic unconformity and the modern sandbar deposits. Low tide at mid-day allowed for an excursion well out on to the tidal dunes.

Following lunch at the Walton lighthouse, the participants investigated the spectacular folds of the Horton Group.

The final stop at Burntcoat Head gave an opportunity to see the sandier units of the Triassic Wolfville Formation.
