Caption: Parish's Loam Work, Erith. Looking S.
Description: Parish's Loam Work, Erith. Looking S. This is (really) the southern portion of the great pit, entered along the southern tramline. View looking south and shows mode of working. A small adit is made at foot of the face. The overlying sand is shovelled down, with the truck placed at mouth of adit. This causes the curious aspect of the face. The sand does not show bedding unless seen very closely. This exposes the whole thickness of the Thanet Sand, about 70 feet, with an ill-defined capping of the pebbly series.
