The Changing Countryside - talk in Wakefield on 17 March

Outside of Calderdale but may be of interest...................

An illustrated talk by Chris Thomson about the countryside we see today has developed under the hand of man from the ice age to the present day.

Chris is best known to most of you for his expertise on farmland birds. However, he is also extremely knowledgeable about the countryside in general. ‘The Changing Countryside’ will look at the impact of a host of factors, including geology, landscape history, farming, woodland management, conservation and recreation, on the countryside we know and love over the past 20,000 years. All accompanied by some fantastic photographs - not to be missed!!


Thursday 17th March, 7.00pm for 7.30pm

The Archway Suite
Holmfield Arms, Thornes Park
Denby Dale Road, Wakefield, WF2 8DY

Tea and coffee will be provided on the night, and a small charge of £4 will be made to FWAG members, and £6 to non-members.

Booking is not required for this event – just come along!
