A detailed and broad Geology survey of the granite resources that surround the Hurlers will be undertaken as will a detailed and broad Geology survey of the granite that the Hurlers Standing stones are made from themselves.
Volunteers will be trained in the surveying and use of specialist equipment used during the geological survey.
