The district described in this new publication extends from the edge of the Black Country conurbations to the rural Green Belt on the Staffordshire-Shropshire borders, and includes the spectacular Ironbridge Gorge, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. The geological record of this district spans 560 million years; the oldest solid rocks are Precambrian volcanics, erupted in a polar setting, while the youngest are red-beds, laid down in an inland arid environment, when Britain lay just north of the Equator.
