Pleistocene Geology of the Country around Bromsgrove

Pleistocene Geology of the Country around Bromsgrove
Pleistocene Geology of the Country around Bromsgrove
The Pleistocene Deposits of a triangular area in Worcestershire, enclosed by the villages of Romsley, Barnt Green and Upton Warren, are divided into Older and Newer Drifts. The Older Drifts are of higher level and consist of gravels below and a boulder clay above. The Newer Drifts are valley terraces deposited in the valleys, cut below the Older Drift level. Five such terraces are recognised and they are correlated with the terrace stages established by Professor Wills for the Severn Valley. Finally, the nature of the sub-Older Drift surface is described. This shows a deep, buried channel which is interpreted as an ice marginal overflow channel.

Abstract

The Pleistocene Deposits of a triangular area in Worcestershire, enclosed by the villages of Romsley, Barnt Green and Upton Warren, are divided into Older and Newer Drifts. The Older Drifts are of higher level and consist of gravels below and a boulder clay above. The Newer Drifts are valley terraces deposited in the valleys, cut below the Older Drift level. Five such terraces are recognised and they are correlated with the terrace stages established by Professor Wills for the Severn Valley. Finally, the nature of the sub-Older Drift surface is described. This shows a deep, buried channel which is interpreted as an ice marginal overflow channel.
