Layers of deposition at Caldwall Lock
Layers of deposition at Caldwall Lock, taken 5 years ago
When the Staffs and Worcs canal was cut through this sandstone, it exposed different layers of rock. The fine sand was deposited during a more 'energetic' period, the rougher layer in calmer times. Apologies for the non-technical language!
