Lewis Hunton Service

A congregation of over 50 attended a special service at St Leonard’s Parish Church Loftus-in-Cleveland on Sunday 14th September 2014 to celebrate the life and work of the Loftus born geologist Lewis Hunton 1814 – 1838.

The congregation heard a tribute to the life and work of Lewis Hunton by geologist Prof Hugh Torrens and a sermon by the Bishop of Whitby; whose episcopal ring includes a image of a Cleveland ammonite.

Following the service, the congregation were treated to an exhibition of fossils and other geological artefacts by the North East Yorkshire Geology Trust in Loftus Town Hall, and a splendid afternoon tea was enjoyed by all.
