The event will include activities, explanation and discussion and will give an entertaining insight into geologically recent changes in the landscape of Lindisfarne and the surrounding arc of land.

If you are interested in getting involved in observing the way the coast continues to change, you are encouraged to attend, as opportunities to do this will be discussed.

The event will be run by local geologist Dr Ian Kille, project manager of the Community Geology Project for the Peregrini Lindisfarne Landscape Partnership scheme.

He said: “This event provides a way to explore and understand what has happened to create this beautiful landscape and also offers an opportunity to become involved in observing and understanding how it is continuing to change so that we can get a better handle on the impact of climate change on our coastal communities. This is really important!”
