An integrated geomorphological survey involving detailed geomorphological field mapping and associated desk studies is a powerful tool in identifying the locations and nature of slope instability within built-up areas. When supplemented with existing or specifically designed ground investigation, initial instability processes and mechanism models can be re-evaluated and refined. This paper provides an example of a geomorphological survey at Yarm, County Cleveland, which aimed to delineate unstable areas and address the potential causes of ground movements within a residential area.
