Basic Information

  • Palaeochannel and three silting up deposits cut into the natural geology of the site area

Sub Groups

  • Sub Group: PCO06_81
    • Palaeochannel, with 3 fills

Group Description

    • Underlying reworked natural was (876) the final silting up deposit of palaeochannel [873]. Under (876) was fill (875), and primary erosional deposit (874). The channel had degraded edges. This large, possibly peri-glacial, palaeochannel drained to the west extending beyond the L.O.E to the West and East. The peri-glacial nature was suspected due to grey/green mottling of central fill 875, which was sampled # 9. This channel was truncated by gravel quarries so while the base survives, the total depth unknown.
