Restoration, Geology and Mineral Extraction Workshop
About the event
This event will begin with a short presentation by Tarmac's Restoration Manager, Enrique Moran Montero and finish with a guided two mile walk from the Tarmac offices.
Tarmac began quarrying in Panshanger Park in the 1980s. With mineral extraction now finished, work is now firmly focused on progressive restoration, and large areas have been opened up as a country park and nature reserve.
Join us on this unique opportunity to discover the underlying geology, the processes involved in mineral extraction, and the subsequent work undertaken by Tarmac, in partnership with HMWT, to restore Panshanger Park and protect its status as one of Hertfordshire's top heritage and wildlife sites.
Suggested donationThis event is free to attend. However, as a registered charity, any donations are greatly appreciated. We suggest a donation of £3 per person for members and £5 for non-members to cover our administration costs.
