This project aims to provide a functional mechanism by which various community interest groups can be engaged in understanding the Peregrini landscape. It aims to carry out a detailed audit of the geology and landscape of the Peregrini Lindisfarne area to provide material to carry out all geological work for interpretation, community engagement, archive, art and training.

This will lead to geological projects including;

  • Age of Amphibians: to provide an insight into the prehistoric flora and fauna which lived in the Peregrini area at the time that the rocks forming its substrate were formed.
  • All Fired Up: to improve the conservation, access and interpretation of rock strata and associated industrial heritage connected with iron, clay and coal extraction and use.
  • Ice Ages: to relate the natural processes of global temperature and sea level control observed in local rocks and the landscape to the contemporary impact of global warming. To engage the local and adjacent communities in work to ameliorate a process which could have a high impact on this area.
  • Lime Trail: to improve the conservation, access and interpretation of limestone's and associated industrial heritage connected with lime extraction transport and use.
  • Moving Sands: to link understanding of the unique and evolving geomorphology of the area to an understanding of sediment movement and its impact on land, intertidal and marine habitats, the tidal causeway and ephemeral archaeology.
