A wide range of events will reveal the ancient stories that have shaped a unique and very special landscape. It’s a great chance to see some of Mendip’s best kept geological secrets with many events being held at sites that are not usually open to the general public including vast working quarries and even former quarries including Fairy Caves near Stoke St Michael and at Westbury sub Mendip. There is something for everyone from family fun days to guided walks in working quarries for adults with some geological knowledge. Full festival programme available at www.somersetwildlife.org/rocks.
