'Information before action' was the clear message to GeoSuffolk in consultations on a Draft Geodiversity Action Plan (GAP). Hence in 2010 GeoSuffolk introduced its Geodiversity Action Pack (GAP!). The 60 page Earth Heritage Suffolk, written by Bob and Caroline Markham, is a handbook full of information for Suffolk geodiversity owners and providers. Our actions are reported in our quarterly newsletter GeoSuffolk Times.
Much of Earth Heritage Suffolk has been incorporated into this website and some sections are available to download here:

From Brandon to Bungay: an exploration of the landscape history and geology of the Little Ouse and Waveney Rivers (2009) and Evolution of Breckland Landscape: chalkland under a cold climate in the area of Beachamwell, Norfolk (2015) both by Professor Richard West have been published by the Suffolk Naturalists' Society with the help of GeoSuffolk. £10 each or special offer £15 for both from the SNS shop.
Breckland on the Web (2016): GeoSuffolk's latest production has been published online by the Suffolk Naturalists' Society. Thomas T Paterson (1909-1994) spent some time at the University of Cambridge researching local Early Palaeolithic sites. That at Barnham in Suffolk was published in 1937 and the other Breckland sites were demonstrated at the British Association's 1938 meeting at Cambridge. His thesis has rested in the University Library since 1942 and Professor Richard West has 'rescued' (with comments) the Suffolk geology part of it.
Chalk in the East (2009): This leaflet, produced for Geo-East by GeoSuffolk’s R and C Markham won a Highly Commended in the ENI Challenge in Down To Earth February 2011. Blakenham Woodland Garden and Newmarket’s Devil’s Dyke and Rowley Mile Racecourse star for Suffolk. This is the 2008 draft which was sent to Ark Design before publication.
