The Society has received a message from the Isle of Wight Council which is reproduced below which may appeal to PFS members both on the island and elsewhere. If you are interested in the Fort Walk on the 8th May 2014, please contact Trevor Price directly:
Hello - For those [PFS] members here on the Isle of Wight, or who wish to travel over to the Island; they might like to combine a geological walk from Dinosaur Isle on the Isle of Wight (Sandown Bay) up past the sites of a number of fortifications above Yaverland and Culver Cliff – finally finishing with a guided tour of the Palmerston Fort on Culver Down. The National Trust are beginning the restoration of Bembridge Fort so it is an opportunity to see a Fort as it is being restored. Details below or contact me.
Best wishes, Trevor Price
