The training is two days and is free, but places must be booked. We will be looking at the remains of a lime which is eroding out of the cliff face on the foreshore. The trainign session will train particpants in drawin elevations, recording features using paper and digtal records and taking photographs.

More details on a classroom venue and itinerary is forthcoming. The classroom session will be in Seahouses at the Seahouses Development Trust Resource Centre (62-64 Main Street, NE68 8AA).

It is advised that participants wear appropriate footwear and clothing, suitable for all weathers (rain and sun). They are also advised to bring a pack lunch, though there is a small shop close by. There is pay-and-display car parking facilities close by and free roadside parking, however please be aware that it is summer season and there are many holidaymakers and therefore the area will be busy. Public toilets and handwashing facilities can be found at the pay-and-display car park close to the beach. The site is approximately a 10 minute walk from the car park, the access is via the foreshore, please be aware this is difficult terrain and can be slippery, appropriate and stout footwear is a must.
