Some 400 million years ago the northern part of the Northumberland National Park centred around the Cheviot would have been inhabited by a volcano similar in size to that of Mount Etna.
The remains of this volcano have had a strong influence over the geological history of the area, ever since it was formed in the last phase of continental collision which created an early physical union of England and Scotland.
Don't miss your chance to hear the story of the formation of the volcano and its subsequent history.
Please note is you are join the Walk and Talk - We will be using good footpaths but you will need walking boots, appropriate clothing and a basic level of fitness as there will be a significant amount of hill climbing.
