The eastern end of the High Weald, the English Channel coast, is marked in the centre by the high sandstone cliffs from Hastings to Pett Level; and by former sea cliffs now fronted by the Pevensey and Romney Marshes on either side. Much of the High Weald, the central part, is designated as the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

For two periods - in the first two centuries of the Roman occupation.

As a result of detailed six-inch mapping of parts of the central and southern Weald during the past few years, the writer has been able to form conclusions concerning its structure, which, while differing in no fundamental respects from the original survey, suggest certain modifications in the interpretation of the geology, in the light of more Cited by: 9.   The Weald is one of six distinctive landscapes lying on a north-south axis through Kent. Extending into Surrey and Sussex, it lies within the arms of the North and South Downs as they open out from west to east, its character stemming from its geology and subsequent soil :

Weald Basin Summary The Weald Basin has a long history of oil and gas exploration; there are 13 producing sites in the basin, some almost 30 years old.

Hydrocarbons were first produced in the 19th century. The British Geological Survey, commissioned by the Department of Energy and Climate change has studied the Jurassic shales of the Weald Size: KB.

This particular webpage is merely an introduction to the petroleum geology of the western to central Weald, with particular reference to bituminous shales. It is not a research study and simply assembles some available, public information.

Other articles where Wealden Series is discussed: Gideon Algernon Mantell: the freshwater origin of the Wealden series of the Cretaceous Period, and from them he brought to light and described the remarkable dinosaurian reptiles known as Iguanodon, Hylaeosaurus, Pelorosaurus, and Regnosaurus.

He also described the Triassic reptile Telerpeton elginense. The British Geological Survey (BGS) in association with the Oil & Gas Authority (OGA) has completed an estimate for the amount of shale oil and shale gas in the Weald Basin in south-east England; published 23 May The estimate is in the form of a range to reflect geological uncertainty.

In the central and southern parts of the region the younger sedimentary bedrock rests on much older sedimentary bedrock (Carboniferous rocks). The latter are rocks from about to million years old and whilst most are sedimentary they have undergone periods of deep burial and deformation during ancient earth movements.

The softer overlying Weald Clay forms the low-lying Low Weald. Return to Top The rocks of the Greensand Ridge mark a dramatic change to marine conditions as a shallow seaway was established between the North Sea and the southern Tethyan Ocean around the western end of the London Platform. Gas has been found in Mesozoic reservoirs in the Weald Basin, particularly along the northern margin.

Most of the gas is dry, with a high methane content and often associated nitrogen. The Weald Clay which occupies the central, upland part of the area from Horsham to the sea coast consists of dark brown and blue clays and shales, occasionally mottled in the neighbourhood of sandy lenticles, which together with calcareous sandstones, shelly limestones and nodular ironstones take a subordinate place in the series.The Hidden Landscape: A Journey into the Geological Past by Richard Fortey For me this is a delicious book which I read with enjoyment.

This book, focusing on England, Scotland, and Wales with a bit of Ireland, is a little like a Historical Geology text, but it is different. /5(33).
