Description: Princes Brick Pit, Cennahs Quay. Looking W. The higher part of the section shows 10-12ft of tough red 'ashy-jointed' boulder clay, with shell fragments and comparatively few stones. In the upper part of it are lenticular beds of buff, stratified loam, undulating by slight contortion. The drift rests on a white sandstone above dark blue shale, dipping south-east at 10-15 degrees. A south-south-east fault with easterly downthrow runs along the face of the sandstone seam, and brings in a higher dark blue shale worked for brick-making. The measures belong to the lowest part of the productive Coal Measures. (Glacial Drift resting on lower beds of productive Coal Measures.)
