Golf course strata
Golf course strata
Below the turf the topsoil and subsoil are made up of glacial till (boulder clay) probably scraped off southern Scotland by glaciers of the last ice age. Below that are modest layers of shelly limestone, eroded away. The whiter, smoother basal layers are of carboniferous limestone (~300m years old) together with some erratics weathered out of the glacial material. For the whole context see LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) . The location is on the best walking route between Seahouses and Beadnell.
