Skiddaw Group of the English Lake District. Memoir for sheet E22
Price £35.00(no VAT)
The Lake District contains some of Britain's most outstanding scenery; it was recently nominated as a World Heritage Site. The spectacular landscape is the result of the area's geological history, evolution and erosion. The mountainous heart of the district is underpinned by Lower Palaeozoic rocks and it is those in the northern sector, comprising the Skiddaw Group, which are the subject of this memoir. This memoir, rather than covering one specific 1:50000 scale map, focuses on a stratigraphical unit covering several of these map sheets.
The Lake District is one of Britain's most popular tourist spots, visited by walkers, climbers and geologists alike. This memoir will be of interest to the student and the professional geologist - and the keen amateur who wishes to gain a deeper understanding of this beautiful region of Britain.
116pp plus information sources, appendices, fossil inventory and index.
Memoir covers parts of 1:50000 scale geological map sheets 22 Maryport, 23 Cockermouth, 24 Penrith, 28 Whitehaven, 29 Keswick, 30 Appleby, 31 Brough and 48 Ulverston.
