Minerals And Fossils: The Geology Of Thurstaston Shore
2 - 4 p.m.
As part of the Wirral Walking Festival join us on a guided walk led by Dr Hilary Davies
looking at the fascinating geology of the Thurstaston coastline.
We will start at Wirral Country Park Thurstaston Visitor Centre and access the shore
by the Station Road steps. These steps are steep but do have hand rails.
The event has been timed to be on a falling tide (low tide is around 4.30 p.m.)
so there will be ample beach clear of water.
The route will go along the beach looking at the geology of the clay cliffs
and the fossils in the rock armour – but not climbing on either!
Booking is essential. This should be done via the CWT website at
Warm waterproof clothing and stout footwear are recommended.
Meet in the car park at Wirral Country Park Visitor Centre, Station Road, Thurstaston, CH61 0HN
Contact person on the day: Alan Irving, 07743 480611
Free but donations welcome.
