Gravestone Geology Walks and Events
with geologists Nina Morgan and Philip Powell
The wide range of rock types used for gravestones means that cemeteries can be geological treasure-troves. Come along to one of our guided gravestone geology walks and find out why. The walks are free to attend, and normally there is generally no need to book, but see exceptions detailed below. Copies of The Geology of Oxford Gravestones, costing £15, will be available to examine and buy after the walk.
Wear comfortable walking shoes or boots and wet weather gear. Please note that these walks take place on public footpaths and uneven surfaces - sorry, no disabled access - and all children must be accompanied by an adult.
You'll never look at cemeteries in the same way again!
