The Builth Wells district covers the south-eastern margin of the Cambrian Mountains and the escarpment of Mynydd Eppynt in Powys, in Wales. Parts of Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire are also covered. The geology of this area has a long history of research, and contributions to the early understanding of the district have been made by Murchison, De la Beche, and Lapworth. This new Sheet Explanation provides an up-to-date interpretation based on new mapping and includes a comprehensive study of the Quaternary deposits and contains a section on the applied geology.
