Join the Lower Windrush Valley Project and Oxfordshire Geology Trust as we take a guided tour of Smiths Bletchington’s Gill Mill Quarry near Ducklington.
The visit will include the current extraction area where we’ll get a good look at some of the exposed gravel faces and talk about the geology and formation of the sand and gravel. We’ll see the extraction and dewatering processes involved and then we’ll head to the recycling plant and processing complex to see some of the machinery in action.
Finally, we’ll move out of the active quarry to look at two sites that were previously part of Gill Mill and have now been restored for the benefit of people and wildlife.
Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate children under the age of 10. Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult.
Places are limited so booking is essential – email@example.com
