PEOPLE can take a tour around five special locations around Wearside.

The Limestone Landscapes Project is organising a minibus to guide people around the sites, with the help of expert geologist Dr Brian Young.

The tour starts at the Stadium of Light car park at 10.30am, returning at 4pm. It will call at South Hylton, Offerton, Tunstall Hills, Hendon Beach and Roker, St Peter’s Basin.

Among the sights will be rock formations of the limestone reef, formed over 240 million years ago during the Permian period.

No prior knowledge is necessary for this event but booking is essential.
