Coronavirus – BACAS cancels excursions and suspends fieldwork

Updated 17 March: to include the information that all excursions for 2020 have been cancelled.

Following the general advice from the Government we are postponing all Society activities which involve our members until further notice. The committee will continue to discuss outstanding matters and future plans by email and will continuously keep the situation under review.


All excursions have been cancelled. Refunds will be made to all those who have booked. We hope that some of the planned excursions can be rearranged for next year.


All fieldwork, including geophysics, is suspended. It will be rescheduled when it is safe to do so.

We’ll be keeping the website updated and will stay in touch via email to let you know when the situation changes. We’re sorry we have had to take these steps but hope that all our members will understand and support these actions.

Wishing you all the best

Henry Lowe
