This Sheet Explanation and map pack gives a summary of the geology of the Newbury district. Newbury lies about 85km west of central London on the River Kennet, in the western part of the Thames Basin. The surface geology of the area is dominated by the Chalk Group, forming the downlands, and constituting the major aquifer of the region. The Upper Greensand Formation, the oldest rocks found at the surface, appears from beneath the Chalk to form inliers in the south-west.

Potentially hazardous ground conditions can arise in parts of this district from landslip, ground heave or flooding; this book contains information on the applied geology of the district.
