... eastward towards the Malvern Line. Lower Silurian sequences thin southward before thickening again, particularly across WNW-striking faults. The resulting Usk Basin, underlying the Usk Inlier, has ill-defined margins, but some additional N-S fault control. The Fownhope-1 and Usk-1 wells indicate that rapid...

... and faulted by movements which may have been as late as the Miocene. Silurian rocks which occur in the Usk and Rumney Inliers consist of sandstones, siltstones and shales (often calcareous) as well as some limestones. The argillaceous rocks often weather deeply and degenerate to clay with rock lithorelicts...
