The area described in this publication lies in south-central Northumberland, in the NE of England. Carboniferous rocks, deposited around 340 and 300 million years ago, underlie land which rises gradually westwards from the undulating coastal plain bordering the North Sea. Drainage is entirely to the North Sea. The eastern part of the district forms part of the Northumberland Coalfield and, although deep mining has now ended, exploration for further opencast reserves is understood to be in progress.
