Archaeology & Geology

Chinnor U3A Archaeology/Geology Group.

We are a small and friendly group who meet on the fourth Monday of every month between 10am and 12 noon.

It is hoped to arrange a number of visits throughout the year visiting sites of interest and for those who are interested involvement in field walks and digs.

Depending on the content, meetings will either be held in member’s homes or at the Village Centre or other locations as advised.

On joining members will be asked to pay an initial fee of £10 to cover room hire and any speaker’s fees/expenses.
