The 6km ‘Corals and Coal’ walk will be led by local geologist Dr Ian Kille and will explore the fascinating coastline.

The journey will include a sequence of rocks that provide an insight into what earth was like 350 million years ago during the Carboniferous Period – a time when plants and trees were a major presence on land.

The walk will take place on Tuesday July 19, beginning at 2pm at Spittal Promenade, and ending at 5pm.
