... along the escarpment between Chipping Campden and Wotton-under-Edge, but exposures away from this line are limited (Fig. 1). These rocks are represented by a variable series of coarse-grained limestones, marls and subordinate sands and clays, laid down in a shallow shelf sea in a lenticular sheet...

... and ooidal limestone gravel, known as the Cheltenham Sand and Gravel, occur at the foot of the scarp around Cheltenham and north to Bredon Hill ( Fig. 4 ). These are thought to be composite solifluction and aeolian deposits (‘head’) of Devensian age ( Barron et al . 2002 ). In this study we have used...

... of kaolinite derived from the chemical weathering of the contiguous Paleozoic limestones (Robbins and Keller, 1952). Farther downflank and closer to the Cheltenham sea the diaspore gives way to kaolinite in the flint clay zone. The clay minerals here imply less leaching than occurred farther inland...

... of the southern and eastern parts of the basin contain quartz-pebble conglomerate in two stratigraphic units. Recent studies by Glass and Siever (1951) have shown that some of the limestones are dolomitic. Clay ironstone is common in the shale as thin bands or nodules and there is a very little chert associated...
