Welcome

The Herefordshire and Worcestershire Earth Heritage Trust is a registered charity that promotes the protection, conservation, improvement and the education of Earth Heritage largely within the two counties.

Welcome to the new website of Herefordshire and Worcestershire Earth Heritage Trust, which was upgraded in June 2020. We welcome your feedback and ideas regarding the site.

Thanks to the National Lottery’s Heritage Emergency Fund for a grant of £5400 to cover 3 months of our running costs during this lockdown period when many income-generating activities are paused.

There is a great variety of scenery and landscape within the two counties. This is largely due to the many different rocks which can be seen at places we call Geosites, along with their contained minerals and fossils. The Trust is also about people. We include Professionals, Friends (that is our name for members) and Volunteers. Our shared aim is to protect and increase understanding of this heritage.

Our activities include large and small funded Projects, producing Trail guides, including one for the Geopark Way, and Maintaining important sites. We also attend Public events to broaden our outreach.
