Known more for its literary connections with Jane Austen and the gardens of the naturalist Gilbert White at Selborne, the Alresford district is typical gentle English countryside, and is fundamentally a product of the underlying geology. Commencing in the east, a journey westwards begins on the low lying sandy heaths and heavy clay pastureland around Bordon and Woolmer Forest, developed from the Lower Cretaceous sands and clays. Farther south-east around Petersfield, the characteristic ridge and vale country is founded on alternating sands and clays of the Lower Cretaceous Hythe and Sandgate Formations.

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. For hundreds of years, geology has played a significant part in the social and economic development of the Barnsley district; sandstone, mudstone, sand and limestone have been exploited as mineral resources. However, it is coal that has had the greatest impact on the area — the coal industry was the major employer for much of the 18th to late 20th centuries in South Yorkshire, and many pit villages and towns sprang up to provide accommodation for miners. The coal industry has left a legacy of challenging ground conditions including large areas of colliery spoil and infilled ground, which must be treated appropriately when redevelopment takes place.

Beaconsfield lies to the west of London, mainly in Buckinghamshire but includes part of Hertfordshire. The area is a busy commuter belt but many places retain the rural character of the Chilterns. The landscape of rounded hills is typical of the chalk downlands and many of the hills are capped with Quaternary Chalk-with-flints. The Chalk is the oldest rock to outcrop in the district.
