This publication is essentially meant to aid applicants learning geology for the normal point of G.c.E., and examinations of similar usual, however it also needs to be stumbled on necessary through the" reader requiring a swift conspectus of the geological background of england, and as forming a foundation for extra complicated paintings. The scope of the subject material necessitated a slender and slippery course be­ tween over-simplification and over the top element, however the stability followed relies upon the adventure of decades of educating in any respect degrees, and of interpreting for the London G.C.E. Board. The maps, combining outcrop dis­ tribution with palaeogeography, offered a few hassle, in particular for classes of constantly altering geography, corresponding to the Cretaceous. It used to be important in those situations to make an arbitrary selection of one small a part of the interval, the geography of that may be illustrated. applicants are steered to not spend time studying each aspect of the outcrop styles, yet to con­ centrate upon the most parts of outcrop. i'm indebted to Mrs. Jean Fyffe for the cartographic work.

These deltas were formed by rivers coming down from the London 'uplands' and were built out into a large lake occupying the site of the central part of the English Channel. The sea at this time was well away to the south-east and (probably) the south-west. The lake waters spread from time to time over the deltaic sand-banks and laid down the clays, and this period ended with a prolonged phase of lake expansion, since approximately the top third of the Wealden Beds consists of the thick ~~C~. In northern England this lowest part of the Cretaceous is quite different since it is entirely of marine origin, consisting of clays in Yorkshire, and mainly of sandstones, ironstones and limestones in Lincolnshire.
