Lampeter district - Sheet Explanation for sheet E195

Lampeter district - Sheet Explanation for sheet E195

Sheet Explanations provide a brief description and interpretation of the geology of the relevant BGS 1:50 000 scale map sheet area. More detailed geological information for the same area is available via the Sheet Descriptions.

Sheet Explanations are printed A5 booklets and are available either singly, or as a pack together with the relevant 1:50 000 scale map, where this map is available.

This sheet explanation contains a brief description of the geology of the Lampeter district, which includes the central portion of the Cambrian Mountains in the east and the rolling country between the Aeron and upper Teifi valleys in the west. Thus, the district provides a transect across the complex collage of geological formations that define the fill of the Lower Palaeozoic Welsh Basin.

As well as summarising the traditional aspects of the geology, the new maps and this accompanying sheet explanation provide valuable information on the applied geological aspects of the district. These include mineral and water resources, potential geological hazards, engineering ground conditions and geological conservation, all of which are significant considerations for planning and development.
