Some of the ideas discussed in this blog are published in my new book called "The Stonehenge Bluestones" -- available by post and through good bookshops everywhere. Bad bookshops might not have it....

West Angle Gallery

The southern end of the West Angle Bay section.  The undisturbed sediments of the interglacial silt and clay series are now lost beneath the thick vegetation right of centre in the photo.  The prominent exposure in the centre of the image shows dark red Devensian till.  The erosional contact between this till and the older silts and clays is no longer visible. 

The famous "swells" in the Main Limestone exposed in the centre of the second north cove at West Angle.  There are several beautifully exposed small synclines and anticlines. (These pics are for geologists who are bored by Pleistocene sediments.  We try to keep everybody happy.....)
