Geology at Nettlebed Common
Saturday December 4 2021 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm
Leader: Prof Peter Worsley. Meet near the bus shelter on The Green, to look at the geology of the Common (SU702868). Nettlebed is a small outlier of the Lambeth Formation above the Chalk. It is an abandoned industrial landscape, from which chalk, clay, sand and gravel were formerly extracted. A bottle oven for the manufacture of bricks and tiles survives. The chalk was mined and subsidence features are common. For further details please use our contact form.
