Effingham Local History Group
presents an illustrated talk by
Professor Richard Selley
FGS, CGeol, Emeritus Professor of Geology at Imperial College, London
‘Springs, soils and civilisation of
Effingham & adjacent parishes
controlled by geology, naturally’.
From childhood Richard Selley has had strong personal connections with Effingham and the Guildford / Leatherhead / Dorking area. His knowledge of the local geology and how this shapes the life of the region is unparalleled (for instance, without Richard, no Denbies Vineyard!). He is an appealing and accessible speaker, and his talk will offer insights to all residents of this district interested in how the underlying geology contributes to the area’s special identity.
