For those interested in Gravestone Geology...


Gravestone Geology Walks

The wide range of rock types used for gravestones means that cemeteries can be geological treasure-troves. Join geologists Nina Morgan and Philip Powell on guided geological walks through  burial grounds in Oxfordshire. You'll never look at cemeteries in the same way again!

All walks are free to attend.  No need to book – just turn up!  These walks are designed to illustrate the wide variety of rocks and gravestones   featured in The Geology of Oxford Gravestones by Nina Morgan and Philip Powell. Copies of the book, costing £14.99, will be available to examine and buy after each walk.


Please note: These walks are not suitable for those with walking difficulties, nor for children in buggies. Uneven ground, so participants should wear comfortable walking shoes or trainers.

New walks will be advertised on this web page when available.
