Earth Science Week - The Geology of part of the Cheltenham to Banbury Railway at Hook Norton
The birth of the railway network not only revolutionised travel and transport of goods for many. It also had a profound effect on the science of geology. Railway cuttings for the new lines revealed rock outcrops that had never before been seen. In April 1878, the Geologists' Association ran a field trip to explore the new cuttings between Chipping Norton and Hook Norton along the Cheltenham to Banbury Railway. Join geologists Nina Morgan and Owen Green to track what their exploration revealed.
