TL0427 : Sundon Northeast Chalk Pit

taken 42 years ago, near to Lower Sundon, Bedfordshire, Great Britain

Sundon Northeast Chalk Pit
Sundon Northeast Chalk Pit
This pit was abandoned in the early 1960s, but was briefly re-used in 1976 when the main quarry became temporarily inaccessible. The relatively hard Totternhoe Stone is visible jutting out in the middle of the face. The quarry was originally abandoned because of glacial drift overlying the chalk which rapidly thickens eastward. This sandy gravel is visible at the top.
