With the help of some external funding, the Shropshire Geological Society (under the project guidance of Andrew Jenkinson) has put together a series of geological discovery trails for a number of areas within the County:
Ironbridge Gorge - "from ancient tropical seas and equatorial forests"
Haughmond Hill - "the rock beneath the trees and in the view"
Lyth Hill and Sharpstone - "from a 550 million year old viewpoint to a big hole in the ground"
Llanymynech Hills - "from corals to coal; quarries to kilns"
Severn Valley: Bridgnorth to Highley - "from desert sands to glacial torrents"
Titterstone Clee and Clee Hill - "from 300 million years old tropical swamps and volcanic activity to coal mines and quarries"
Titterstone Clee (on-line version)
Wenlock Edge - "from tropical seas to a wooded escarpment"
Around the Wrekin - "from ashes to ice: the making of Shropshire's favourite hill"
