Barnoldswick founder of geological society honoured

THE founder of the Craven and Pendle Geological Society has been honoured.

Paul Kabrna, from Barnoldswick, has been presented with the Moore Medal by the Yorkshire Geological Society.

It is awarded ‘not more frequently than biennially as an acknowledgement of services to geology in the north of England’.

Paul said: “As an amateur geologist I was delighted to receive such an honour from the Yorkshire Geological Society, especially as the Moore Medal is usually awarded to professionals.

“I hope that this encourages other amateur geologists throughout the north of England to continue with their geological interests.”

He joined the Yorkshire Geological Society in 1988 and two years later, in 1990, with the encouragement of his late wife, Yvonne James, and Paul Wignall, founded the Craven and Pendle Geological Society centred on Barnoldswick.

He has been the main driving force behind the group ever since.
