The East of England has a fascinating and
valuable Earth heritage.
‘Geodiversity’ describes our heritage of rocks,
soils, landforms and their formative processes
which make up the landscape.
The region’s geodiversity ranges from the chalk
hills of Bedfordshire to the sandy, coastal
'crags' of Suffolk; from the wind-swept beaches
of Norfolk to the Fenland soils of
Cambridgeshire; from Hertfordshire's chalk
streams to the tidal marshes of Essex.
Geo-East is a partnership of organisations
active in conserving and promoting Earth
heritage in the six counties of the region.
