The lane that was once the sea
Coalpit Lane is a byway close to Queen Charlton and looks to be a fairly old track. However, in this part of the world the local geology includes some of the edge of the Cotswold Stone field. Here is a little piece of evidence, poking out of the ground. The stone is Jurassic limestone and is rich in fossils - especially sea creatures.
