This Sheet Description provides an account of the geology of the district covered by Geological Sheet 153 Wolverhampton. The district extends from the edge of the Black Country conurbation in the south-east, to Telford in the west, and includes a large tract of rural Green Belt on the Staffordshire-Shropshire borders. The solid rocks at outcrop range from Precambrian to Triassic in age. The oldest rocks, pyroclastic tuffs, originated in an island-arc setting in south polar latitudes; the youngest are continental red-beds that formed in inland sabkha environments, when Britain lay just north of the equator.
