Bucks Geology Group


Please ask us if you want any advice on what to do with a school or adult group visit to one of our Local Geology Sites.
Many of our sites make an interesting self-led visit, the choice depending on age and experience.
School visits to Coombs Quarry and to Whiteleaf Nature Reserve are good for a multi-disciplinary approach.

Sites suitable for visits by individuals or groups are shown in the following list.

  • Bradenham
  • Brill
  • Buckingham Sand Pit
  • College Lake
  • Coombs Quarry
  • Northmoor Hill
  • Olney
  • Ridgeway/the Kimbles
