Chalk Newton Geoscience are based in Weymouth, Dorset, England. We provide outdoor geoscience education and learning activities in Dorset, Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and the Isle of Wight.
Our classroom is the glorious Southwest England.
We have the Wessex Basin in East Devon, Dorset and Hampshire, a world-class sedimentary basin for learning and research.
Further west are the Cornubian igneous intrusions of Devon and Cornwall with related metamorphism and mineralisation, Variscan structural geology and the older Lizard ophiolite (oceanic obduction) complex near Lands End.
What We Do
Our programmes cater for professional geoscientists, conference/meeting delegates, undergraduates, postgraduates, recreational interest groups, families and individuals.
Itineraries are from one to ten days and can be customised according to the participants, learning objectives, timing and budget.
Richard established Chalk Newton Geosciences after spending a career working overseas in the petroleum industry. His specialism is in stratigraphy, sedimentology and palaeontology. Returning to Dorset in 2018, he built this niche company providing quality outdoor learning in geology, exploring the rocks and landscapes of Dorset, Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and the Isle of Wight.
