2 Coalville district - Sheet Explanation for sheet E155 [Booklet]

Sorry, not available

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. The Coalville district lies to the west of Leicester, and is mainly occupied by undulating countryside interspersed with small villages. In the north, coal-mining settlements developed around Coalville and Measham, and in the north-east lies the higher ground of Charnwood Forest where the oldest rocks in the area, the Charnian Supergroup, outcrop. The Coalville district is a major producer of hard rock aggregates and has an important brick manufacturing industry, using local clay and mudstone. Deep coal mining has ceased but surface mining continues. The geological, mineral extraction and industrial legacy have left many earth-science related planning issues which need consideration prior to development. [Booklet]

Scattered villages and the town of Bridgnorth lie in the west. The western and central parts of the district comprise mainly farmland and woodland, including the northern part of the Wyre Forest. The elevation of the district is typically in excess of 75 m above OD, with the highest point within the district, at 315 m above OD, in the Clent Hills in the south-east. The district is drained by the rivers Severn and Stour, which flow from north to south across the western and central parts of the district, respectively.
