Trail Guides and Field Meeting Reports have been published for a number of areas of geological interest within Shropshire, including a small number of Easy Access Geological Trail Guides. Please respect the copyright of the authors.

In order to minimise the file size, some of the Trail Guides are accessible here only as low resolution files. Both high resolution digital and printed versions can alternatively be supplied on CD-ROM or printed on paper. Please contact Scenesetters, who will be happy to provide current charges and process your order.

Details for specific localities are often included within the survey reports for registered sites, notably those designated LIGS, RIGS, GCR and SSSI. Please go to the Links page for further details.

Visitors to the County may also wish to consult Peter Toghill's 2006 Geology of Shropshire.

There are also brief descriptions of the more popular geological localities here on the web, at the Society's Top 20 sites and our Shaping of Shropshire site.

Visitors should also follow both the Countryside Code and the Geological Fieldwork Code (a leaflet publicly available and issued free by the Geologists' Association, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1V 9AG).

The purpose of the field meeting was to introduce the variety of geological features outcropping within the Stretton Valley related to glaciation and glacier margins. The maximum extent of the late Devensian Ice Sheet brought glaciers into the Church Stretton Valley which have left excellent examples of deglacial and ice sheet stagnation terrain. Current questions concerning the glaciation relate to its extent within the Valley and its provenance, whether from the north, as part of the British-Irish Ice Sheet, or locally generated from snowfields up on the Longmynd, or even from the west, with Welsh Ice over-riding the plateau.
  Even so, the considerable size of the Stretton Valley suggests that glacial erosion by any of the possible contenders alone is unlikely, and that either extensive erosion developed as a result of meltwater pouring from the glaciers or else river action prior to glaciation was in part responsible, possibly assisted by a much earlier (?Anglian) glaciation. However, the age of the V-shaped valley, although suggesting river erosion, may actually be much older still since Lower Palaeozoic sedimentary rocks mantle the Precambrian on the western side.

Within the field area of the Welsh Marches, centred on Ludlow, the excursion considered the work of two pioneers of geology: Arthur Aikin (1773-1854) and Robert Townson (1762-1827), and the possible train of geological influence from Townson to Aikin, and Aikin to Murchison, leading to publication of the Silurian System in 1839.

The relation between bedrock geology and landscape has been demonstrated, considered and discussed along the valley of the Afon Banwy, between Llanfair Caereinion and Llangadfan, Powys. The Ordovician-Silurian turbidite bedrock has been folded into two broad synclines separated by an anticline, partially offset by NW-SE trending faults. The distribution of weak and strong sedimentary beds has controlled the etching by erosion of an ancient land surface, widely developed throughout central Wales. This basic landscape has been modified by a series of Quaternary ice ages and their aggressive glacial and periglacial weathering regimes.

A number of geologically interesting sites in the vicinity of Telford were visited in order to demonstrate the diversity of features recorded within designated RIGS. The sites included: Blockleys Brick Pit (Upper Carboniferous), St George's Church Oakengates (Upper Carboniferous), St Michael's Church Lilleshall (Cambrian; Upper Carboniferous), Duke of Sutherland's Monument Lilleshall (Uriconian Precambrian; Upper Carboniferous), Colliers Side Quarry associated with Lilleshall Limestone Mines (Upper Carboniferous), and Great Bolas (Permian/Triassic unconformity).

The field excursion which met at Craven Arms on May 15th 2004 focused on the Stretton Hills. This area is well known for its complex geology and associated landscape patterns, reflected in the choice of building stones. Geology and local history have made each of the churches different, but they nevertheless reveal some common trends. Three of them (St Laurence Church Stretton, St James Cardington, and St Peter Rushbury) still have Norman naves built of locally derived rubble, later modified by better quality stone such as that from Grinshill. Meanwhile, the church of St Margaret at Acton Scott persevered in its use of the stone won from its own local and unique outcrop of Ordovician Acton Scott Limestone.

Rosenbaum, M.S. (2006). Field Meeting Report: Bromfield Sand and Gravel Pit, nr Ludlow, Shropshire, led by Ed Webb, 22nd April 2005. Proceedings of the Shropshire Geological Society11, 12-17.

Exposures were examined of a thick sequence of fluvioglacial sediments which are being actively extracted for building materials and construction aggregates. The bedrock geology is the Raglan Mudstone Formation (the Downtonian of the Pridoli Stage at the top of the Silurian), and is hundreds of metres in thickness. The Pleistocene superficial geology comprises well-bedded sandy gravels with occasional thin beds of sand. There appears to be very little silt or clay except at the base, where some 0.1 m of red-brown laminated silty clay occurs. The sandy gravels have the appearance of having been deposited by moving water, probably a braided river. The laminated silty clay appears to have been deposited within still water, possibly on a lake bed. The likelihood is that these deposits have been transported by glacial ice and then washed out by meltwater to be laid down by braided rivers; the earliest (lowest) part of the sequence might have been sedimented as a deltaic deposit within a temporary glacial lake (the thin clay at the base may represent a lake-bed mud). Some very large boulders have been encountered at the bottom of the fluvioglacial sequence at Bromfield, for which the name "tobogganite" has been suggested, with the implication of rafting across compacted snow.
