Sunday 25 March 2018|10am-4pm Tutors: Peter and Lynne Flower | Canterbury campus | £39 When we look at the countryside of Kent we think of a rural idyll. But historically Kent has often been at the centre of industrial development which has shaped our countryside and wildlife. After a brief look at the underlying geology of Kent we will visit the Roman and Medieval iron industry and the impact it has had in the west of the county whilst in the east coal extraction has left its mark. Gunpowder manufacture, paper and brick making have all had an influence on the habitats for wildlife. But it is as a farming landscape that Kent is most noted. And in this diverse landscape we will explore our rich and varied wildlife.
