Welcome to GeoConservation Kent PDF Print

The GeoConservation Kent group is an association of people who care about geological sites and wish to identify, conserve, enhance and research those of particular importance in Kent.

Geology literally means 'study of the earth'. It is a study that has affected the lives of all of us. It has enabled us to calculate the age of the earth, to understand the causes of earthquakes and volcanic erruptions and to predict their occurrence. It is the fundamental science of mining and quarrying.

Much of our geological knowledge has come from the study of exposed rock faces and the fossil remains found in the rock strata. Such sites are a vital part of our historical heritage. Sadly, many are being lost through neglect or vandalism, necessitating an active geo-conservation policy to protect them for the benefit of future generations.
