Their story has also made the news in Huddersfield (article in the Huddersfield Examiner)where he was born as Trena and family continued their journey visiting other areas where memorials have been erected in Clough’s memory. He really was a great man much respected for his keen scientific mind and geological eye. We're very proud he spent 41 years sharpening these skills at the BGS and helped build its reputation (then and now!) for being a world class leader in geological mapping.
Thanks so much to Trena and her family for visiting us, it was a privilege to share with you our Clough collection.
