The Fleet
leader: Alan Holiday

 The Fleet shores offer good possibilities for fossil collecting and a partial section across the Jurassic strata of the Weymouth anticline. Hard hats aren't required but come prepared with a packed lunch and boots that don't mind mud!

We will meet by the track down to Pirate’s Cove for a 10.30 a.m. start. The NGR is SY 660773 (post code DT4 9GL,Wyke Castle). We can go down to the Fleet and work north and south before going to Tidmoor Pont (driving) and Tidmoor Cove then on to Moonfleet Manor. Parking is limited, especially for Tidmoor Point so we need to take as few vehicles as possible.

Thursday, 15th March
Salisbury looking at building stones in the Cathedral Close and the Cathedral
leader: Kelvin Huff

Meet outside Salisbury Museum (in the Cathedral Close) at 10.30 a.m. There are several Park and Rides for Salisbury, depending on the direction you come from. The Cathedral "suggest a donation" on entry- currently £6.50 for seniors.
We'll do the Close first as there is a Communion at 12.00 each Thursday. After lunch, we'll look at the Cathedral
