The Avon RIGS Group
RIGS are Regionally Important Geological and Geomorphological Sites
The Group’s aim is to identify, survey, protect and promote geological and geomorphological sites in the area of the former County of Avon - the modern Unitary Authorities of Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire. RIGS are selected for their educational, research, historical and aesthetic value.
The Avon RIGS group is supported by the Bristol Regional Environmental Records Centre (BRERC), where the geological and geomorphological records for the region are held.
