The lithofacies and permeability structure of the Abbey Wood borehole, near Delamere, Cheshire, UK, have been investigated so that permeability distributions can be established for characteristic sandstone lithofacies in the Permo-Triassic sandstone aquifer. The borehole penetrates the Helsby Sandstone and Wilmslow Sandstone formations and six major facies (coarse- and fine-grained fluvial channel fill sandstones, sandy sabkha, sand sheet and dune aeolian sandstones, and a massive sandstone facies) and one minor lithofacies, a mudstone facies, have been identified. The permeability distributions for each lithofacies show subtle systematic differences. The two fluvial sandstone facies and the massive sandstone facies have systematically...
