Monsal Trail
Monsal Trail
A view from a slanting farm access bridge on the Monsal Trail. The old Midland railway route from Ambergate to Buxton and Manchester Central. Limestone can be seen on the left, the area is part of a massive limb of an antiform. The bottom being limestone, after that shales and millstone grits then coal (mixed with fireclay, sands etc). The coral reefs of the carboniferous were swamped by the deltas advancing from Laurentia killing off the corals. The grits washed down from the eroding mountains formed shales and millstone grits, finally the swamps formed with coal forming tree ferns (like Lepidodendron).
