Caption: Lichfield Road, W. of Hopwas. Looking SW.
Description: Lichfield Road, W. of Hopwas. Looking SW. The upper part of the photograph shows a large pocket of drift (pebble often vertical) in a hollow in the Bunter Pebble Beds. At the surface it weathers to a mass of pebbles and forms a soil exactly like that of the conglomerate. In this area the pitting is often preserved in the pebbles in the drift. The lower part shows a bed of horizontal Bunter Sandstone resting on a wedge of gravel, with a much higher dip due to current (false) bedding.
