Field trips in the Bristol area

The files below represent field trips written by various people for classic sites around Bristol. These are for use of colleagues at the University of Bristol only, as they are ‘in press’ for a soon-to-be-published field guide, edited by Shaun Lavis: Lavis, S. (Ed.) 2021. Geology of the Bristol District, Geologists’ Association Field Guide No. 75.

I offer these trips here courtesy of Shaun Lavis and Susan Marriott, who prepared all the excellent maps in the guides. Note that these are compressed pdfs, so rendition of figures is down-graded a bit. Please send corrections and suggestions for improvement to Mike Benton.
