Geology Explained in the Severn Vale and Cotswolds

£4.99

Product description

An 'easy-to-follow' guide to the geology of the Severn Vale, the Cotswolds and the Malverns, this book deals with a region of outstanding geological interest and has been written for students, amateur geologists and countrymen - indeed, for all who enjoy scenic beauty and would like to know more about its natural causes and understand something of its primeval origin.

Starting with a general account of the geology of Gloucestershire and the reasons for its special attractions to geologists, the guide conducts the reader on a series of field excursions to the most interesting - and often the loveliest - sites in the area. Wainlode Cliff, Bredon Hill, Leckhampton Hill, Cleeve Hill and Birdlip are some of the beauty spots visited; there is a geologist's explanation of the phenomenon of the Severn Bore and an extensive review of the rock structures underlying the Severn Bridge and of the special problems they presented in securing the foundations of the bridge supports and approaches. The Painswick area and the Combes are explored and the is fascinating section on Cotswold building stones and tiles, while the final chapters are devoted to field studies of the geology of the Northern and Southern Malverns, including May Hill.

The book has numerous illustrations throughout.

The dustjacket shows signs of shelf wear and rubbing and has a small tear at the front. The dust jacket is not price clipped. Other wise , the pages are clean and the binding is tight.
