- Site visit to Cefn Ila, 17 April 2019
- Site visit to Wildmill, 24 April 2019
- Next general meeting pencilled in for 15 September
- Approach by the Living Wells Project (Keep Wales Tidy) whose initial phase involves wells/springs in the Brecon Beacons area, some of which have already been designated as RIGS. This will be a citizen science project starting in spring 2019, lasting 3 years & funded by the HLF.
- Contact by Dr G T Bowen about a site at Llanilid near Bridgend, where a kettle hole has already been partially damaged by open cast mining & is now further threatened by housing development.
- Suggestion from Alan Bowring/BBNPA that SEWRIGS might like to be involved with geological interpretation at Craig y Fro.
- Radyr Quarry (currently shelved)
- Stormy Down is an SSSI in three parts (one of which, the section at the M4 motorway, is unaccessible to the public) representing the upper Quarella sandstone. Access to the first, although short in distance, is hampered by an overgrowth of bramble, gorse and bracken. At present not a high priority, since the site is not in danger from any developments.
- Geopark monitoring
